Oh to see our great big world
through the eyesight of a child,
Discover the secret pleasures
innocence to smile.
Wander back and find the freshness
with trust inside the heart,
Touching soft of tender things
such wonder they impart.
Feel the poignant whispers
of time that will stand still,
Ask why.... it could be so
 imagination to fulfill.
Hear the trilling of the song birds
nothing else a need,
The crickets chirping in the grass
nothing else to heed.
Run with joy in fields of yellow
pulling petals as we go,
Sit and make that daisy chain
does he love me so.
Savour fragrance pungent now
deep within the lily,
Can you feel a giggle inside
burst out deliciously.
Gaze up to the heavens
and see the angels wings,
Brushing past the fluffy clouds
home of dreamy things.
Lift and fly where feathers go
and float on gentle breeze,
Imagine being in God's arms
way above the trees.
We haven't tasted something yet
what sweetness shall we choose,
Pull a weedy stem and suck
memories to soothe.
Stroke the warmth of shiny stone
tumbled in a stream,
And marvel at the ways of God
who's loving you and me.
Making us a special place
where once again we see,
With the eyes of wonder
forever ours to be.
