We Search for God

Hear the birds, sing songs bright
Can’t hear God, in day or night
God speaks we hear not with ears
Is God near?
 
We search for God in how we feel,
Don't taste God in the meal,
We breathe and try to smell,
God's near, and my soul is well
 
Eyes that try fail to see,
That my God is near to me,
My senses are short of the mark
Sight's in the dark.
 
We search for God in how we feel,
Don't taste God in the meal,
We breathe and try to smell,
God's near, and my soul is well
 
We can feel what God made,
The Lord is near in what we taste,
Senses fail our souls do know ,
God’s near hearts grow.
 
God gives the rose for sight and smell,
Feel dog fur, hear church bells,
We taste and see God's good
Sense and soul I’ve understood.
 
Gifts of grace from God are good.
