“Songbirds in the Snow” by Rejetta Morse


Although the snow begins to fall

with bright heavy flurries,

the cardinals lift up their heads

and sing with no worries.

They cast all their deep fears aside –

they trust God will provide.

As they shiver their soft feathers,

the snow and strong winds blow.

They seek for shelter in the woods

within the silent snow.

In birdhouses and trees they hide –

they trust God will provide.

God speaks a word to the snow storm

and whispers in the skies;

the winds calm to a gentle “hush” –

he calls the birds to rise.

Their tiny brown eyes open wide –

they trust God will provide.

They stand and hop on long lean legs,

and spread their wings to fly

with great hunger for their bird seeds

they fly into the sky

with strong belief – God is their guide –

they trust God will provide.

As flocks now gather in the snow

they find bird seeds to eat.

And they all sing, “purdy,” “purdy “

when all the songbirds meet.

With joy they sing – “God has supplied” –

they know God will provide.

Matt 6:26

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them.
