The Wild World
©2018 Mollie Pearce McKibbon
The world is wild and full of care;
There is danger everywhere,
And yet, when I look above
I see the grandeur of God’s love.
The way through life is full of snares
Of empty pleasures, foolish dares,
But when I smell the blooming spring
I know God’s love is everything.
No manmade lights can compare
To all the twinkling stars up there.
No thrill of speed nor vain award
Can tempt me ever from my Lord.
When many years have dimmed my eyes,
And life no longer holds surprise,
My heart will yearn with keen desire
To sing in God’s celestial choir.
