Sunflower

I bow down with heartfelt praise
To thank you for these glorious days

Though I stood and did not run
Following the way of the sun

I obeyed my grand design
Living my short life as a sign

That the master can use to teach
And the Spirit can use to beseech

To follow Truth with grace and humility
Joyfully resting in holy poverty

Though my flower is now cast down
I joyfully surrender my life to the ground

So that I will live forevermore
In the silence of the Lord’s soil

Trusting like the sparrow and lily
In Him who perfectly loves me

For now my time is spent
And to eternity I do commit.
