God Works Wonders Now And Then

(c) 2017 Geneva Griffin

V1
High atop Sugar Loaf Mountain,
Glassin' down at the bay view,
That Rio De Janeiro harbor,
Looked like still water next you....
When I stepped down from the trolly,
Reached the city by rental car,
If wishes made dreams possible,
At Cafe' Goucho's coffee bar....
We hit it off and became more than friends,
God works wonders now and then.....

Chorus
God works wonders now and then,
Natural beauty never ends,
Simple wonders of this world
are a complex accomplishment,
God works wonders now and then.....

V2
Built our nest on Prince of Wales Island,
And on one long clear winter night,
The Aurora Borealis,
Brought livid color to our rich lives....
While those northern lights were dancin',
There began a true miracle,
She smiled and then she giggled,
A few months down the road....
That bundle of sheer energy was pure preciousness,
God works wonders now and then.....

Chorus
God works wonders now and then,
Natural beauty never ends,
Simple wonders of this world
are a complex accomplishment,
God works wonders now and then.....

V3
She grew up and soon married,
Before we knew it they flew off,
To became missionaries,
In far off Victoria Falls....
Zimbabwe needed teachers,
So "when the smoke that thunders" called,
The two of them heeded,
Made this old world better off....
A whole lotta love and patience was theirs to give,
God works wonders now and then.....

Chorus
God works wonders now and then,
Natural beauty never ends,
Simple wonders of this world
are a complex accomplishment,
God works wonders now and then.....

Hi Geneva,

I've been remiss at commenting on F3 these past weeks or so, but I've been stopping from time to time and have peeked in on a lot of your posts. Like what you have going on. I'm curious if you've got a tune behind the lyrics--a song in your head as you write . . . what you do can translate well to song. Enjoyed checking out all of what you've posted. Thanks for sharing.

Deej

Thank You Deej,

I always write to a head tune. It's probably not the best tune for the song cause my head tunes can start sounding alike

after a while. The head tune is what I go by to meter the lyric, not perfect but works for the most part. I rarely count syllables.

Thanks Travis,

Actually I was trying to write one about a road trip across the country a couple years ago of a woman who was drawn to a ghost town cause she had taken to a diary in her family tree . I called it "A Saloon Girls Diary" but when my internet investigation of the area geography got me to the four corners I got distracted by all the hidden history of the cloud walkers, and that lead to "bones of the renoun" all over the world, All the big cover ups and how It all makes the book of Genesis make perfect sense. I got so engulfed in our hidden history and I didn't know where to take my song from there, and that history led to this that and the other so called conspiracies I stopped writing and kept learnin' an visit sites and wonders on youtube. I still do.

Anyway long story but that 'bout sums it up.

I see alot of things different and got a much broader world view, literally!

Geneva
