Old Oak Tree

Legend of the Forest Trees

One day, as God was listening To prayers that came to Him, He heard a whispered longing From a forest’s mighty limb. “O Lord”, it prayed, “let me be formed Into a palace fit For the most noble king on earth.” And God said, “So be it.”

Another tree then dared to ask To be a ship well known B men who sail on all the seas And live in every zone. The Father kindly looked on it And touched it with His hand, “You shall have your request in full But you may not understand.”

A third tree shyly prayed, “Dear God”, (And its leaves were aglow With its earnestness to serve its Lord) “Please let me always grow “With branches pointing heavenward To lead men’s thoughts to Thee.”

And God looked down on it with love And breathed, “This, too, shall be.”
The woodmen came and felled each tree And dragged them out one morn The first became a cattle shed Where the King of kings was born. They fashioned one to be a boat To sail on Galilee. From this the Master calmed the storm And leveled the rolling sea.

The tiny skiff has travelled far On sea, to every land, As men in faith have calmed their fears With His “Peace, be still!” command.
The third tree sadly hung its head, “They are making a cross of me!” But ever since, it has pointed men To the Christ of Calvary.


Down on Knees PrayingHere I am Lord down on my knees again
I seek your face and not just your hand
For so many times before I knelt here
Thinking it was all about me.

But it was you who walked up that hill
On your shoulders heavy the burden
That should have been mine
You carried my load suffered and died.

Though the world says I don’t have enough
I know whose I am and who is mine
Your perfect love has freed my aching heart
And I just want to be closer to you.


 

We promised one another
that no sun would set
without, “I love you”.
We pledged no door would close
without a farewell kiss.

Older now, my lips still yearn
for another sweet kiss
one more tender “I love you”.
Through all those years
our hearts as one
our vows were kept.
