Disclaimer: I actually wrote this song in 2005. It's on my album called "Real." But the last words in the sermon Sunday were "You'll find God in the small things." So I decided to write a new arrangement of my song. The original is drums and piano in C. This one is guitar and bass in A. Hope writing an arrangement for an existing song isn't too much of a cheat. I did rewrite one line of the lyric as well. LOL

Sleeping bags 'neath a starry sky;
Cricket songs are filling the night,
God seems far away,
Till I hear my daughter pray:
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
My God's in the... small things:
A song when a child sings
Roses in the evening
Or a warm summer breeze,
When life overwhelms me,
He sends small mercies,
If I wonder where God has been...
I’ll find Him in the....... small things.
The sun comes up, a new day starts;
Dawn doesn't wait for broken hearts,
Picking flowers, skipping stones,
Watching the ants as they scurry home,
A little girl laughs and tosses her hair,
I look in her eyes and see her daddy there.
A grain of sand becomes a pearl;
Drops of water form a waterfall,
Notes on a page, a symphony,
And God uses a small voice
When He speaks to me.
I wonder where God has been...
Then find Him in the.......
