As I meandered along throughout my day, and as I was talking to my Lord;
The terrible thought came into my head, what if He didn’t hear my words…?
For I talk to Him about every thing, whether it be big in my mind or small;
Sometimes I think He must get tired of my babbling, cause I tell Him about it all!
At the very thought that He would not listen, just decide to turn a deaf ear;
Oh how this thought caused me to feel sick, filled my mind with such fear…
Who in the world could I turn to with all my lifes worries and cares;
And how could I bear it if I called out His name, but found that no one was there?
My children and grandchildren, friends and loved ones I love and hold so dear;
Who would watch over them in the paths they walk, if the Lord wasn’t there?
The sick in body or spirit or mind, the hungry, the poor and the weak;
What would we do if He decided to just stop listening, no longer caring for our needs?
We all call on His name and seek His help, though none are worthy of this Lord;
Yet every time we call His name, He cares enough, to listen to every single word;
Oh the more our mouth should give thanks, for an ever present Heavenly Father;
Oh the more our souls should praise His name, that with us He would even bother.
