When God gave us laughter He meant it to be
An outward expression of some inner glee,
That’s laughter – the sound of a happy surprise.
The purpose of laughter is simple and sane,
Not mocking or cynical, sour or inane,
Not a hurt to the hearer, a snigger to sting,
For God gave us laughter a blessing to bring.
So let’s use this talent for what God intends,
For helping and healing ourselves and our friends,
Its a fountain of fun, and a musical sound –
God fully intends us to spread it around.
