“Give me a new idea, I said,
While thinking on a sleepless bed;
A new idea that’ll bring to earth
A balm for souls of priceless worth;
That will give men thoughts of things above,
And teach them how to serve and love.
That will banish every selfish thought,
And rid men of the sins they’ve fought.
I saw Him in the morning light,
He made the day shine clear and bright;
I saw Him in the noontide hour
And gained from him refreshing showers.
At evening when worn and sad,
He gave me help, and made me glad.
At midnight, when on tossing bed
My weary soul to sleep He led.
Twas new to me, yet old to some,
This thought that to me has become.
A revelation of the way
We all should live throughout the day;
For as each day unfolds it’s light,
We will walk by faith and not by sight.
Life will, indeed, a blessing bring,
If we see God In Everything.’
