THIS I KNOW:
I have planted a garden –
SO I KNOW WHAT FAITH IS.
I have seen the tall trees swaying in the breeze –
SO I KNOW WHAT GRACE IS.
I have listened to the birds singing –
SO I KNOW WHAT MUSIC IS.
I have watched little children playing –
SO I KNOW WHAT ENTERTAINMENT IS.
I have seen the mornings without clouds, after showers -
SO I KNOW WHAT BEAUTY IS.
I have seen the miracle of the sunset –
SO I KNOW WHAT GRANDEUR IS.
I have lived in a happy home –
SO I KNOW WHAT LOVE IS.
And because I have perceived all these things –
I KNOW WHAT WEALTH IS.
