The Simple Man
God creates a special person
That He calls the simple man
And this person spreads great joy
Like no other one person can.
The simple man on earth
Holds traits not special or rare
But he shows abundant light
For all those in his care.
He’s a man to boast little
With no great riches or fame
But to those lucky to be near him
Their lives are never the same.
He may be a fisherman or carpenter
Or make sweet dandelion wine
And he always possesses a trait
That makes him quite divine.
The divine simple man trait
That is so very dear
I the love of wife and family
That he holds ever so near.
He provides when they are in need
Holds them when they are weak
And he loves unconditionally
No matter what avenue they seek.
And when the Lord feels it is time
The simple man will answer His call
But all those who loved him know
He was simply the finest simple man of all.
