If God Was A Cowboy

If God was a cowboy he would rope and ride, instead he tries to teach us the bible to abide.

He'd be branding cattle way out in the west, but no, he is leading us to try to do our best.

If God was a cowboy his belt would bear his name, we would know to trust his word all the same.

His boots would be shiny and pointed at the toe. We must listen to his word and let the love flow.

If God was a cowboy his home would be a ranch, we should praise his name as we sing and dance.

From hours in the saddle his legs would have started to bow as on Sunday morning we sat to worship row after row.

If God was a cowboy his hat would shade his face, he has love for the people no matter what their race.

He would worry if the grass was getting very dry, we must be honest and faithful, we must really try.

If God was a cowboy he would love us one by one, so we must do our best until our days are done.

We should read our bible, pray and help our fellowman, then we can make it to heaven, I just know we can.

Nice poem! I think if God was a Cowboy, Moses would have been talking to a burning tumbleweed instead of a bush; and he would have parted the Red River instead of the Red Sea ...

Paula, this is a good thought. You know, He definitely is a cowboy. He lives within their hearts...the good cowboys and cowgirls, that is. Good poem!
