Rapt Gaze/Praise

This is the day the Lord has made’

we will rejoice and be glad in it

Psalm 118:24

It’s a brisk frost-embossed world this morning…

enough to drive wonder mad!

Granted to you and I, a gift to unwrap with rapt gaze/praise

To rouse replenished worship for mercy’s unwearied ways

Earth and sky like a smorgasbord groaning with beauty’s feast

Reminds us that life is far more than debt to duty’s beast

This is the day the Lord has made; tis by His grace we go

And mankind is never betrayed by He who loves us so

But trustworthy and true He helps us each step of the way

All you and I are called to do is trust Him, and obey

No melancholy mandate this, no grin-and-bear-it grind

For He who keeps His promises is merciful and kind

Where a parade of proofs displayed drives rapt gaze/praise wonder-mad

In this new day the Lord has made to rejoice and be glad
