    God’s Creations

    God had a wonderful plan

    A very long time ago.

    He created a beautiful earth,

    And woman and man.

    He made the sun for light,

    And the stars for night.

    He made the moon for it,

    To be a little extra bright.

    He made the trees for air,

    And the birds to soar the skies,

    The ocean for life in the sea,

    And the flowers for beauty.

    He made the night for rest,

    And the day for play.

    He made the animals for life

    Upon the mountains so tall.

    Tyler A., age 10, Arizona

    What He Created

    He created the stars and the seas,

    The deer, the lions, and the tiny bumblebees.

    A petunia, a lily, an oak, and a pine,

    Fruit on a tree, grape on a vine.

    The air that we breathe,

    The shelter we need,

    The huge mountains to climb,

    The precious rubies to find.

    The green grassy meadows,

    The frightening black widows,

    The glassy lakes to wade.

    He made us, and us, He made.

    The Temple

    The temple is a wonderful place for my family

    And me,

    To see the angel Moroni above the tallest tree.

    When I am twelve it gives me joy to know

    Inside I’ll go

    To do baptisms for the dead;

    Makes me warm from head to toe.
