When the days are dull and sombre Lord, do You go round telling jokes?
Do You sometimes tease children at Your knees and say, “Don’t tell your folks!!!”
Do You make new songs or creatures for although Creation’s done
It would be nice to slice some mice and give them a long green tongue?
I’m sure You walk through hospitals where children lie in pain
And tell them happy stories just to see them smile again
Then on Your way back to Your house You find their Mom and Dad
And cheer them up and pat their pup, saying “I’ve visited your fine lad”.
Though everyday is different with people to be blessed
Tears to dry, and asking “why?’ and making Mothers rest
Grandparents not forgotten; don’t they doze off a lot?
And as they age at some new stage they go back into a cot!
I’m sure Your days are happy and You’re always busy too
And when I get to Heaven that is what I’d like to do
So please leave out some tasks for me that will not take too long
And now I am a writer I’ll write a special song.
