Cherish Poems

What God Is Like

I did not know what God is like
Until a friendly word
Came to me in an hour of need–
And it was God I heard.

I did not know what God is like
Until I heard love’s feet
On errands of God’s mercy
Go up and down life’s street.

I did not know what God is like
Until I felt a hand
Clasp mine and lift me when alone
I had no strength to stand.

I think I know what God is like,
For I have seen the face
Of God’s son looking at me
From all the human race.
