The Praise Forgotten

Blue Horizontal Line

 


The praise forgotten, you to God can give,
By enjoying each day of your life as you live,
That is what God meant you to do,
When He shared His Love in creating you.
So don’t use dreams of brighter tomorrows,
That may never turn out, or money to be made,
That you may never see,
To excuse man’s brutal, rude and ugly ways today,
Robbing us all of the times we need to share,
To laugh, to love, to praise, to be,
To live as mankind was meant to,
Lest God be robbed even more.

“Wherein have we robbed God?”
They answer loudly, and I dare say for Him,
Being His temporary attorney in this place:
“In Joy and Happiness in Him, in moral reason,
In wisdom and wise use of what He gives,
And lastly allowing God such little pleasure in how we live.”
