My eyes can see the stars

When the sky is dark and clear.

My ears can hear my cat

As she purrs beneath my ear.

My hands can touch a book,

Each page a dream, a wish.

My mouth can taste a pepper

That spices up my dish.

My nose can smell a lilac,

Its subtle scent so sweet.

My heart can know the Savior,

That one day we will meet.
