There’re trees in the backyard,
And they remind me of a Truth,
That You‘re the vine and we’re the branches
And so here we remain in You and You in us,
You bear us the fruit of wisdom,
For nothing, we cannot do apart from You.
There’re fruits in the table,
And among it, I found one who’s sweet,
It tastes good in my soul,
Oh, it gives me inner peace.
What a delight it is to have confidence in You
That even in bitter days, my taste’s become better.
There’re birds outside the window,
And here they’ve found shade for awhile..
The curtain welcomes and we share the same air,
Just like how the same rain pours into good and the bad,
The God who whispers strength to the weak,
Is the same God who humbles the proud.
There’re fishes among different oceans
But only a fisherman knows how to bait them right,
As when Jesus called his disciples
He called them by their names they didn’t even mention.
He saw what’s inside them, what others’ outlook
And that’s how You save and keep saving.
Everything in this world is temporary
But those temporary things magnify one Name,
They speak one Truth and never contradicts
As wisdom runs unto the veins of the lost.
As Your sheep, we hear You call
The beauty of Your words becomes refreshment to our souls
We are alive in Your whispering,
And we hear You shouting over every misery.
