One Evening on the Beach


One Evening on the Beach

One evening on the beach,
As I walked with family dear,
I paused for a quiet moment,
I stood with a listening ear.

The gulls were soaring all around,
And diving to catch their meal,
Our loving Lord and Creator tends to them,
And ensures they have their fill.

It was lovely with dusk falling,
The air fast becoming cool,
I marveled at these creatures,
But moreso marvelled at God, who over them does rule.

He rules these waves and rules the sea,
And sets for them their bounds,
He teaches lessons through nature,
Some simple and some profound.

Each thing stays within it's course,
And doing as it ought,
Surely so ought we to do,
Who by our Lord's own blood were bought.
