The rain is gone
The skies are clear
A gust of wind
Lingers near

If you watch
You may see
A rainbow come
Beneath the tree

For water lingers
Upon the leaves
And wafts from them
Upon the breeze

Such a rare wonder
For me to see
A lovely rainbow
Beneath the tree

It makes me think
Of my precious Saviour
Who through the storms
Is always there

His wonderful love
Like the rainbow that shines
Lets me know the promise
I am His and He is mine

For He promised He'd never leave
He would always be there
And in the storms of life
Upon Him cast every care

And though it may seem
It was only by chance
I know God sent the rainbow
It was not by happenstance

The carnival is back
Another year gone by
All the games and rides
The food and drinks to buy

It's like a snapshot
The world in miniature
So crowded and noisy
A worldly adventure

You see all the people
Rushing here and there
Eating, drinking, laughing
Seemingly without care

They seek to fill their hearts
With thrills and food galore
But when it's all gone by
They thirst and hunger for more

Where is God in all this
I don't see Him anywhere
The thrills last only a second
They have not escaped their cares

What drives people so
To try and fill the void
That exists within their hearts
The emptiness they try to avoid

An emptiness God would fill
If only they sought Him out
He would heal their wounded souls
He would give them a way out

He would fill them with His love
They wouldn't have to buy
It is freely given
By our Heavenly Father on high

So let the carnival go
No more rushing here and there
Your Heavenly Father
Will meet your every care
