God Sees That We Are Growing
By James Dillet Freeman
We are all children, large or small,
Some young, some older, that is all.
God, I am sure, does not expect
Children to always be correct.
This earth is but a little star
And we its human creatures are
Often not brave or wise or strong
Or true to what is best for long.
Yet through our cloud of dark unknowing,
I think God sees that we are growing;
God sees us stumble, sees us err,
But sees we are not what we were.
And when we turn from love and run
Away from truth, God does not shun
Us then, but loves us all the more—
Is this not what a God is for?
Children, you are the offspring of
Our Mother Life, our Father Love.
