A Glorious Place Little Tree

But what a glorious place to live, little tree.
In summer and winter
You are always here with me

My days on McCloud Creek, have been natural and free
I brought a little sapling from my giant willow tree
I planted it next to a brook nearby, where I could still see
And say to it each morning, What a Glorious Place to be

The little tree grows stronger with each passing day
And soon the woodland creatures came to the tree to stay
And there, they raise their families, so natural and free
All because I planted a little willow tree

Stand tall little tree, you are truly beautiful
You have won the struggle to be here in this place
For many years to come I will marvel at your swaying
Your beauty, your strength but most of all your grace

My children’s children will know you
And scamper in your shade
All because of one small willow
And the journey that we made.

Merry Christmas My Darlings

Peace on Earth


Merry Christmas my darlings
They heard their Grandma say
What in the world is going on here
Is this really Christmas day

Do you know what really happened
A long long time ago
How a little babe was born
In a land that has no snow

A great star shown above him
To give the world light
And wise men offered presents
To the babe born that night

I heard his name was Jesus
And in a manger he lay
There were animals all around him
And angels kneeled to pray

Heaven was filled with singing
From a chorus up above
As God presented to the world
A token of his love

You can learn about this Jesus
In your Bible every day
And even more important
He will be there when you pray
