He waters in peacefulnessGlad servant of the Master Gardener
Encouragement given that flows daily
Within, then without;
The ground about is often dry
The ground is hard again
Sun so harsh, withering all life,
But this one walks His chosen path
From plant to plant
Up and down each row
Around each bed
Even scattered plants in the fields as well.
At times tears mix with the water,
These plants cared for, tenderly day after day
Many days that go on for years
And yet, little fruit on the stem,
No lasting fruit on the vine!
Tireless prayers are spoken from the heart without ceasing
Then, “Mercy and Love” says to water them one more time;
So he steadfastly waters on
Led by the Master’s strength
Led by the Master’s Spirit of Love!
