The Sun of God
Olivia Bown Flinders

When I was a child
I didn’t spell things right
And I thought the Son of God
was actually
the Sun of God

So every time
I looked at the sun
I thought I was looking at Jesus

Hey Jesus
while I ran on the playground
Hey Jesus
while I rolled in the grass
Hey Jesus
while I swam in the ocean

Jesus makes me warm!
Jesus gives me light!
Jesus wants me for a sunbeam!

And now looking back
I think I was spelling Sun right
all along
