God Answers

When we see the birds

All building barns for store,

It will be time to worry,

And not before!

We know not what each day may bring,

But this we know, our hearts will sing,

For He who gives the days or years,

Has power to still our doubts and fears.

And it may be dark or fair,

We will not doubt, God answers prayer.

Yes, God, who heeds the sparrows fall,

Will always answer when we call.

—- Mrs. Ollie C. Monroe—-
