Abundantly!

Often, when I see the title of this blog,
I sing this old song to myself,
which I used to utilize in my personal worship a lot in my late teens:

    Abundantly!

From mountains high, cool waters flow,
The singing breeze, green meadows grow;
Shine tall pine trees, blue sky above,
Are all expressions of my Lord’s love.

And this one God who made all these,
Is interested in you and me;
His greatest gift is to make us free,
New self, more life, abundantly.

God speaks, He acts, what He says He will,
His promises He will fulfill,
Through Christ His focused love appears,
To put at ease the life that fears.

Relationships to all He brings,
The solid feel inside me rings;
No phoney do I have to be,
For God, through Christ, accepts just me.

The dawning sun, a bright new light,
For folks to join, no need to fight;
Creation through variety
Displays God’s plan for unity.

And this one God who made all these,
Is interested in you and me;
His greatest gift is to make us free,
New self, more life, abundantly.
