My God Is No Stranger

By Helen Steiner Rice

God is no stranger in a faraway place,
He’s as close as the wind that blows ‘cross my face.
It’s true I can’t see the wind as it blows
But I feel it around me and my heart surely knows
That God’s mighty hand can be felt every minute
For there is nothing on earth that God isn’t in it ―
The sky and the stars, the waves and the sea,
The dew on the grass, the leaves on a tree
Are constant reminders of God and His nearness,
Proclaiming His presence with crystal like clearness.
So how could I think God was far, far away
When I feel Him beside me every hour of the day?
And I’ve plenty of reasons to know God’s my Friend
And this is one friendship that time cannot end!
