Apple Tree Grace

Lord is good to me,
And so I thank the Lord,
For giving me the things I need,
The sun and the rain and the apple seed
The Lord is good to me.

For every seed I sow
An apple tree will grow
And soon they’ll be an apple tree
Enough for the whole wide world to see
The Lord is good to me.

I wake up every day
As happy as can be
Because I know that with God’s care
The Appletree will soon be there
The Lord is good to me.


There’s a double meaning throughout this grace poem. Clearly it is about being thankful and being careful to sow good seeds in the coming day. It also refers to Jesus who is thought of as an apple tree in some traditions around the world. So the final lines:

“The Appletree will soon be there, The Lord is good to me”,  take on a new and deeper meaning.
