A TREE OF MANY BRANCHES
BY: TERRY S. KREPPS 3/15/00

A TREE OF MANY BRANCHES
STANDING BY A BROOK
SUMMONS TO MY CONSCIENCE
TO GRASP A BETTER LOOK


A TRUNK SO THICK AND MASSIVE
IT HOLDS THE BRANCHES TIGHT
SO WHEN A STRONG WIND PASSES
IT SURROUNDS THEM IN THE FIGHT


IT'S RESTING PLACE UPON A BANK
WITH WATER FLOWING FREE
A FOLD OF DEER SO BOLDLY DRANK
THE WATER BY THE TREE


THE BARK IT WAS A HEALTHY BROWN
TWAS SHELTER TO THE CORE
THE COMFORT IN IT COULD BE FOUND
FROM THE WATER BY IT'S SHORE


THE ROOTS ARE NESTLED SAFELY
WITHIN THE SOIL SO DEEP
ALLOWING THE BRANCHES SO GRACEFULLY
TO REACH OUT IN THEIR SLEEP


NEVER WILL IT WORRY
NOR WILL IT HAVE TO THINK
TO SCUFFLE OR TO HURRY
TO THE LORD FOR IT'S NEXT DRINK


SO PLANT YOUR ROOTS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS
FIRMLY IN GOD'S WORD
FOR THERE ARE LIVING WATERS
FOR ALL OF THOSE WHO'VE HEARD
