“For Man God Made”

by J. Randal Matheny

“God who richly provides us with all things for our enjoyment.” —1 Timothy 6:17 NET

For man God made the world and all
That it contains: the changing seas,
The hope of Spring, the hues of Fall,
The brooding rain, the bracing breeze;

The feathered birds to fly the skies,
The flowering plants, ferocious beasts,
The morning sun as farmers rise,
The work of hands, and happy feasts;

He carved the valleys, raised the heights,
From buried seeds, the towering trees;
And home’s embrace for peaceful nights —
For human joy did God make these.
