Where are You, Lord, I cried with tears?
You said You were by my side.
But, Lord I didn’t see You.
Though ever so hard I really tried.
And then I heard Your answer
In that still small voice that speaks within:
“My child just look around you –
There is no place that I’m not in.
I’m in that sweet and loving child
Who greets you with a cheering smile;
I’m in the friend who calls on you
To visit and chat awhile.
I’m in that lovely birdsong sweet
That falls upon your listening ear,
And in that friend who prays with you
Who even sheds with you a tear.
I’m in the fragrance of a flower,
In the kiss of day’s first gentle dew;
In the breeze that falls upon your cheek,
In every morning fresh and new.
I’m in the love of a dear pet’s eyes
As it trustingly snuggles close to you.
My love is all around you, child,
And my promises for you still true.
I am in the Word, in the Book I left
To guide, comfort, each day anew.
You see me in so many ways
In the lovely world I made for you.”
