Passing By

By Melissa McLaughlin

Lord, let me not pass by

Let me not pass by without a

glance at Your glory

Your splendor

Your majesty

Your golden voice singing,

“See what I have made,

For joy

For wonder

For awe

For beauty

So you can gaze

And not pass by

My gentle touch

Waiting for you

Waiting for eyes to see.”

    • Thank you, Linda! When I am just walking to my car or passing by and the glory of God’s creation catches my eyes, it also catches my heart. He is singing His love to us through the work of His hands. I pray I don’t miss even a moment!
