Open Declaration

Open Declaration
by Michael Doyle

The cross is not a decoration
It is an open declaration
Of how much love the Father brings
These are the lessons of the hymns we sing

Looking carefully at all that we see
What brings happiness, what brings misery?
Staring out bored for the longest
Seeing what we need the strongest

A hit and miss sense of conversation
Still seen in our observation
Cultivating the goodness of the plan
Living life in loving God's command

There are experiences to live through
Learning from the things that we do
Moving out beyond the timberline
With nowhere to live but to shine

It's not to be contrary
But let's let God be our sanctuary
Speaking out these words of power
We'll find our finest hours
