Gifts of Healing
The miraculous healing of a universal light,
Soundness of body in time is the greatest height;
The future is naturally endowed with hopeful sight.
Making merry to what my mind inclined,
Giving glory to what my heart defined,
And Finding peace in the battle my life was refined.
God, the father of the hope to my deterring dreams,
Christ, son of the hope of glory to my noisy screams,
Holy Spirit, breathe of my life as waters flows down the streams.
The natural beauty of a solitude gift of life,
The healing of the soul in aptitude tests of light,
Your divine healing kindles the soul to a relief.
The sweet-scented fragrance of natures beats of gift,
Restores the troubled soul that all may profit,
From all human Endeavors to the purest fight
The gloom of the nights gave an expedition to my word,
The brightness of the day gave life to the lost world,
And all has been saved and healed by the gift of the Lord.
Walking down the narrow paths of life,
Running through the blowing storms of strive
And knowing the struggles of man surely we shall override.
To thee, He has restored the life in the body,
To us; He has showed His Glory to the soul,
To the world, He has kindled the light in a Spirit.
