O Praise Him

O praise Him
for flowers adorning the earth
as examples of God’s grace
and giving us new birth.

O praise Him
for the crisp morning breeze
providing a breath of fresh air
and making us feel at ease.

O praise Him
who came with great speed;
willingly with grace
to suffer and bleed.

O praise Him
and turn your gaze up high
in the sky to His return.
It was for us He was willing to die.

O praise Him
while gazing at the skies vastness;
for He has shined the light
providing a way through the darkness.

O praise Him
for all these many rewards
and even more in the future.
It is eternity we look towards.
