Wednesday Riff: Mindful

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers
When I see the moon and the stars that you have established
What are human beings that you are mindful of them, ordinary people that you care for them?
When I look at the snow-smeared mountains, massive and imposing
When I see the raging oceans and the depths still waiting to be discovered
What are human beings that you are mindful of them, ordinary people that you care for them?
When I wonder at the intricate science of creation
And the fragile features of this world
What are human beings that you are mindful of them, ordinary people that you care for them?
When I hear about the news, about a planet so often at war with itself
When I have to face another day, another week, another month of duty and difficulty
What are human beings that you are mindful of them, ordinary people that you care for them?
When I realise that I still have so much to learn
When I find again that I do not have all the answers
What are human beings that you are mindful of them, ordinary people that you care for them?
When I remember Jesus, his humility and compassion
When I look again on that darkened cross
What are human beings that you are mindful of them, ordinary people that you care for them?
When I look at the moon and the stars, the work of your fingers,
The glory of your presence, writ large in the heavens
What are human beings that you are mindful of them, ordinary people that you care for them?

If you've appreciated this, why not...
