Praynlady's Blessings & Other Fun Stuff: August 2009

Wednesday, August 19, 2009


I watched the willow bend and weep
It’s sorrow deep and dark
I watched it bend low to the ground
And saw the cracking bark
I watched the tree lean down so low
As if to lay a spell
I watched it listing to and fro
That tree I know so well

I watched the willow almost broken
It’s heart so filled with pain
It’s leaves could almost touch the water
As I watched it bending even lower
I watched the willow that seemed to call
Out from it’s lonely hell
I watched it laying there so sad
That tree I know so well

I watched the willow begin to rise
It’s leaves began to rustle
I watched it raise it’s precious head
And saw it use it’s awesome muscle
I watched the willow stand in place
It’s head raised straight to God
I watched it smile as if to say
Twas saved by His amazing grace
That tree I know today.
