By David De Jong
If you can see the sky in the birds,
You will soar through the toughest years.
If you can hear music in the words,
You will feel some joy in the tears.
If you can cry out to the stars,
You will find peace from the night.
If you can hold dreams in a jar,
You will watch your thoughts come to light.
If you can un-color black and white,
You will see without any spite.
If you can stitch a broken heart,
You will make a wrong come to right.
If you can see the Savior baby born,
You will hold the Truth in your heart.
If you can feel the tearing flesh of thorns,
You will reach His love, outstretched, impart.
You will find His grace; secure, with hope and rest.
You will find His mercy, while enduring the test.
You will find His love, and know Him best.
When all is done, you will see – you are truly, blessed.
