Counting Stars

From Psalm 40:11:  “Do not, O Lord, withhold Your mercy from me; let Your steadfast love and Your faithfulness keep me safe forever.”

Looking to heavens

Counting tiny stars

Vast universe speaks

Lifting faith’s crossbar


Seeking God’s mercy

Searching for one sign

Bethlehem stable

Trusting His design


Unleashing His plan

Placing feet on rock

Saved from sinking sand

Joining Savior’s flock


Praying every hour

Walking toward grace

Calvary’s cross weeps

Darkening hope’s place


Counting just one star

Praising light from God

Empty tomb proclaims

Filling faith’s seedpod

From Psalm 40:16:  “But may all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; may those who love Your salvation say continually, ‘Great is the Lord!‘”
