Mostly hot, usually arid,
sagebrush and cactus grow.
in sand and jutting with rocks,
desert wind blows.
land is harsh and welcomes
to enter the scorching gates,
the bird of the desert
delivered from all those hates!
bird of the desert does not need or want!
there is no rain, God guides it to water.
there seems to be no food,
by day God provides.
bird of the desert
its home in the rough,
settles into the nest with peace,
God cares over it.
the bird of the desert,
need not want or worry.
loves us and through
Christ has opened His Heavenly Gates.
like the bird of the desert,
have been delivered from all this world’s hates!
Bird of the Desert by Ronhale Psalm 132:15
