Where You Do Wait Like A Father On Your Children
(after A. G. Visser)
by Gert Strydom
You hang the universe in the nought,
know about every shooting star,
unfathomable is Your insight and intellect,
Your works are secret and explicit.
Your power does unfold with omnipotence
and all things serve You with respect
but You do also know pain and anguish,
do know of that which waits in the future.
Your foots do walk on infinity
beyond the borders of space and time,
yet man's heart is a place where you do dwell
and constantly You do rescue in every circumstance.
I notice Your presence in every day,
I hear Your voice in the thunder,
I smell You when the rain falls on the ground
and Your work is also in the stars in the night.
You are present in every human that laughs,
in everyone that yearns for something more in life
as an inclination to You is build into each one of us
where You do wait like a Father on Your children
