The World Jesus Made

    “The World Jesus Made,” Friend, Sept. 1999, 19

    The World Jesus Made

    I watch the cotton-candy clouds

    Floating in the sky.

    I make big castles in the sand

    And hear the seagulls cry.

    I pick white daisies in the field

    And watch my puppy play.

    I feel the sun so warm and bright

    That lights our world each day.

    I laugh at little yellow ducks

    And swing high on my swing.

    I see the fireflies lighting up

    And hear the big frog “sing.”

    I walk in grass so cool and green,

    Eat peaches from our tree.

    I love this world He made for us—

    It’s just so … heavenly.
