There is much to remind us, O God
of Your constant attention
of Your tireless care;
The sparrow flies with joyful abandon
unconcerned and secure in Your watchfulness
The flower stands to its full height
and parades its colours
proud and unashamed.
When we take the time to see,
when we stop long enough to listen
The sight of the carefree ones cuts through our fear
The sound of Your reassuring words
quiets the frightened child within us.
And so we praise You for Your unfailing love, O God,
and thank You that You never stop reminding us
that our lives are in Your hands.
