A Robin had fallen to the ground
When he saw me he tried to scurry away
He seemed so frightened and alone
My heart cried for him. With him I had to stay.
I ever so gently picked him up and placed it in
I bound his wounded wing, fed and gave him water
He was still leery, but he began to trust in me.
With care and love he grew stronger in every
As time went by his wing began to mend and move
I gave him some freedom; I let him fly around
He knocked over a few trinkets and hit the
Thankfully a few mosquitoes, spiders and bugs
met their doom.
The day came when the Robin could fly a distance
Time had come to set him free,
He could sing in the meadows and pick worms from
He is a bird and free he is supposed to be.
Isnít that just like God
To bind up our wound and nurture us each day.
Waiting for us yield and trust in him,
So he can build us up and guide us safely along
