Prayer In A Poem, For The Ploughing

Prayer In A Poem, For The Ploughing

A garden bright, a lovely sight,
Care and time given to the earth,
Colour and beauty all around,
The Glory of God, easily found.

Guide me when out and about,
That I may notice the sun coming from south,
That I may feel rain, fresh air, clay on my fingers,
That I may see the colour of a butterfly as it lingers.

Our earth is precious, life too,
Help me to be mindful of what I do,
The wonder of Creation around me every day,
Trust our Higher Power come what may.

Let me dig deeper,
Root for Christ my keeper,
In a changing and challenged world,
Bless the day that we have today.
