Tall, empty, and bare,

Are the trees.

That each had their share,

Of green leaves,

To cover skeleton rough,

And supply food enough.

 

Now the trees stand undressed;

Evening’s come.

Time to stop and rest,

Work is done.

Time to lay clothes down,

With a faint rustling sound.

 

And now a new cover’s there,

On each limb;

Laid with mother’s natural care.

Light is dim.

A blanket of snowy fluff,

The night’s brisk cold to bluff. – eab, 11/1966

“SEARCH ME, O GOD”

Search me, O God,
And know my heart today;
Try me, O Savior,
Know my thoughts, I pray.
See if there be
Some wicked way in me;
Cleanse me from every sin
And set me free.

I praise Thee, Lord,
For cleansing me from sin;
Fulfill Thy Word,
And make me pure within.
Fill me with fire
Where once I burned with shame;
Grant my desire
To magnify Thy Name.

Lord, take my life,
And make it wholly Thine;
Fill my poor heart
With Thy great love divine.
Take all my will,
My passion, self and pride;
I now surrender, Lord
In me abide.

O Holy Ghost,
Revival comes from Thee;
Send a revival,
Start the work in me.
Thy Word declares
Thou wilt supply our need;
For blessings now,
O Lord, I humbly plead.
