-It Never Cease's To Amaze Me-

        We're been planting seeds for ere so long

        and it ne'er ceases to amaze me

        how the Good Lord makes them grow

        there's some seed would dormant lie

        and let ages upon ages go on by

        just when it thinks the time is right

        up sprouts the shoots in glorious sight

        as if to sing out loud and shout

        glory be, glory be, I see the light

        that's why it never ceases to amaze me

        how the Good Lord makes them grow

        the roots then take hold in sometimes

        desolate and arid soils

        and all the while the little green leaves above smiles

        as it quenches its thirst on the morning dews

        then looks up in awe at the warming sun

        and still the Good Lord's work is not quite done

        for that little seed then grows into a giant tree

        that is why it ne'er ceases to amaze me

        how the Good Lord makes them grow.

    "You" never cease to amaze me. Poignantly put prose on the way our God operates. It's not for us to know.. just the seed to sow...
