If I speak, you may hear my voice,
But please receive God’s message.
He gave me the gift of speech,
And the words to say.
If I write, you may read my words…
But please learn God’s lesson.
He gave me the gift of communication,
And something of value to share.
If I sing, you may hear my song…
But please listen to God’s melody.
He gave me the gift of music,
And a reason to sing.
If I dance, you may watch my movements,
But please see God’s actions.
He gave me the gift of motion,
And the direction in which to go.
If I paint, you may view my pictures,
But please see God’s image.
He gave me the gift of art,
And the beauty to portray.
Whatever I do,
Please see God in me.
All the gifts are from Him,
And to Him belongs all the glory.
