Poem

Sparrow’s Song

Michael Beck Michael Beck

When things go well we smile and laugh and feel as light as air
When things go wrong we frown and fret beneath a load of care
But high above the atmosphere that touches us below
Our God resides with eyes of love that rest on each sparrow
Not one of these you’ll ever find with heavy, furrowed brow
No matter what the weather is they sing to show us how
In every day, in every way, we always should rejoice
Lift up a song and sing along with our own trusting voice
