Life’s a wonderful journey – you just need to look and see.
The joy is all around you - buzzing like a bee.
You’ll find there’s bunny rabbits – and bouncing Kangaroos
And tweeting sweet canaries – and ruckus cockatoos
There’s flitter flutter Butterflies - and high up soaring eagles
Bouncing pouncing Kittens - and sniffing snuffing beagles
There’s Rivers flowing gently, and waterfalls that thunder
Sunsets shining sweetly - and starry skies of wonder
Cheery Daisies sprouting - and the majestic smelling rose
Juicy luscious mangoes – and crispy potatoes
Music filling airwaves – making wondrous harmony sound
We can run and jump and roll - and go dancing round and round
There’s friends we meet all over - to hang out with for fun
To go play tag together or swimming when there’s sun
And then of course there’s Family, who love us on our journey
Some with booming laughter, and others with faces ferny
Now, sometimes on our journey – it can get so very sad
Though God is always with us - when things go scary bad
You may not see God’s there - when you’re blinded by some trouble
But he’ll be there beside you - even when you’ve burst your bubble
And when our Jesus returns - and re-makes all things new
Our wonderful journey won’t end - we’ll simply continue
And forever we will live - no dying, not even spew.
Our wonderful journey’s together - with God, and me and you.
