I Celebrate


I celebrate
The eyes that see
The world God made
For you and me.
I celebrate
The ears that hear
The sounds of life
That ring out clear.
I celebrate
The mouth that smiles
And speaks kind words
The heart compiles.
I celebrate
The arms that hold
And reach out to
The young and old.
I celebrate
The legs that run
Or walk with friends
In rain or sun.
I celebrate
The eyes that see
And all the rest
God gave to me.
