Waves of the Sea
Born midst ocean’s storms we joined with others in its swells
Carried by the winds for miles ’neath clouds we rose and fell
Often under thunderings, but silently as well
Driven over denizens whose depths could have touched hell.
Warmed by sun, reflecting moon and stars like many jewels
Constantly accompanied by those who swam in schools
Steadily our paths were set by Him Who made the rules
Destined for God’s glory, and content to be His tools.
Breezes danced upon our mantles, to their tunes we played
Bearing easily the crafts we met along the way
Visitors from heaven often came to us and ate
Joyfully we shared our treasures as an act of praise.
Soon we fastened on our goal and rushed to meet the shore
Tum’bling waters happily until there were no more
Quickly covering the sands as those who came before
Leaving only whitened foams behind of slips we wore.
