VIOLIN SONGS: THE TEMPLE OF GOD, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: In the desert by the bush
Last Line: In his heart he makes his home.
Subject(s): David (d. 962 B.c.); God; Jesus Christ; Job (bible); Moses; Prayer; Temples; Mosques

IN the desert by the bush,
Moses to his heart said Hush.

David on his bed did pray;
God all night went not away.

From his heap of ashes foul
Job to God did lift his soul,

God came down to see him there,
And to answer all his prayer.

On a dark hill, in the wind,
Jesus did his father find,

But while he on earth did fare,
Every spot was place of prayer;

And where man is any day,
God can not be far away.

But the place he loveth best,
Place where he himself can rest,

Where alone he prayer doth seek,
Is the spirit of the meek.

To the humble God doth come;
In his heart he makes his home.
