LITTLE WRAPPED BLOCK OF WOOD

THIS LITTLE GIFT I WANT TO GIVE TO YOU

IN HOPES THAT WHENEVER YOU FEEL BLUE

IT MAY REMIND YOU OF ONE SO VERY DEAR

A FRIEND WHO IS EVER WITH YOU EVER NEAR

HE WAS A CARPENTER, WHO MADE PLANS

TO BUILD A MANSION EVER SO GRAND

HE IS SOON TO RETURN FROM FAR AWAY

COULD BE MORNING, NOON, NIGHT, OR DAY

ALWAYS ON TIME HE IS NEVER EVER LATE

KEEP PRAYING WITHOUT CEASING IN FAITH

LOOKING UPWARD TOWARD THE EASTERN SKY

KNOWING YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH
