If Not For God…

Lord-i-tank-u.jpgLike a seed I germinated
In my mother’s womb
He kept me in there
With so much uncertainty
Will I live?
Will I develop well?
Will my mother survive it?
I would have dried up
Or developed into a monstar
So much uncertainty
But we made it

If not for God…

And I lived on
Because he wanted it so
I wish I could really be thankful
Be thankful when I arrived safely
With my mother by my side
But it’s better late than never

Then He took my hands
And took me for a walk
A walk through life
And I moved on
Year after year
He held tight unto my hands
Through thick and thin
With my parents safely kept for me

Three beautiful companions joined me
To keep me company
To make me smile when I was lonely
And we grew up
Then He re-called my sister back home
To leave this sinful and wicked world

When I needed knowledge
He kept molding my brain
Year after after
And I kept acquiring knowledge
For He was by my side all through

Years rolled by
I needed to break free
To be a man
To start up a home
To survive independently
He gave me a roof over my head
He clothe me
He never let me starve
Year in year out

Like a tree, I developed branches
One, two, and then three
three beautiful branches
It was no longer me, myself and I
For God decided to bless me
A sinner like me

My branches have grown
Year in year out
Looking so beautiful
Looking so radiant
Looking so healthy
Not looked upon with pity
But looked at as lucky ones
With the glory of God shining upon them
That the blind can see it

Like Oliver Twist
I ask for more
Grace, mercy, protection, favour

Because God changes not
I will yet praise thee for ever
Lord, all glory to you
