“Life Is O’erflowing with Beautiful Things,” Friend, July 2009, 7Life Is O’erflowing with Beautiful ThingsWords and music by Thomas M. Croft Gently1. Blue skies, mountains, rainbows, fountains:These are some things I love to see.Rivers, canyons, pine trees, oceans:Heavenly Father made them for me.2. Music, laughter, peace thereafter:These are some things I love to hear.Please’s, thank you’s, may I’s, can do’s:Hearing them fills my heart with good cheer.3. Silky flowers, cool rain showers:These are some things I love to feel.Promptings, guidance, warm assurance:That’s how I know the Spirit is real.[Chorus]Life is o’erflowing with beautiful thingsMade by our loving and glorious King.If I but strive to be grateful and true,I can be happy in all that I do.Copyright © 2008 by Thomas M.
