Welcome

God painted a picture and called it the world
With mountains, valleys and streams.
God painted a picture and called it the world
With beauty, laughter and dreams.
splashes of yellow, purple and red
tinged with gold and green.
A glorious rainbow, a sunset of flame,
Flowers and trees serene.
A baby’s smile, a mother’s tear,
A lover’s happy thought
And many other wondrous things
Were on His canvas wrought.
God painted a picture and called it the world
with mountains, valleys and streams.
He gave it to man, saying, “This is your world,
“Guard it with love and humility.
“Keep faith with Me and humanity
“Keep faith with Me . . . keep faith with Me.”
