For the Endowments of Life

Last week I attended a CES Conference. At one point a friend and colleague gave all the participants a few minutes to write a personal psalm. I’m not a poet, I know, but I was still glad to have a few solitary moments to clear the world from my mind and write these words of gratitude.

For the wonders of the earth, I adore Thee For the light in heaven, I see Thee For the glories of thy creations, I admire Thee For the blessing of family, I honor Thee For the companionship of friends, I thank Thee For the power of Thy Word, I worship Thee For the gift of Thy Son, I praise Thee For the Spirit that enlightens me, I follow Thee For all the endowments of life – I love Thee

If I were to add (my own) images to my thoughts it could look something like this.

For the wonders of the earth, I adore Thee

For the light in heaven, I see Thee

For the glories of thy creations, I admire Thee

For the blessing of family, I honor Thee

For the companionship of friends, I thank Thee

For the power of Thy Word, I worship Thee

For the gift of Thy Son, I praise Thee

For the Spirit that enlightens me, I follow Thee

For all the endowments of life – I love Thee
