Rhymes & Reasons
Finding God in "It's a Wonderful Life"
Posted: December 30, 2012
Dusting for divine fingerprints…
Finding God in Bedford Falls?
By George, I have. Will you?
Like Waldo He keeps showing up
amid the many clues.
He's there at old man Gower's store.
and in the Granville home.
You'll find Him there at Harry's prom
or as George prays alone.
He's there beside young Zuzu's bed
and at Martini's bar.
To find the Lord within this film,
you need not look that far.
He's there when Mr. Potter tries
to trap George in his web.
And He is there when George gives up
and wishes he was dead.
Although you'll never see His face,
God's fingerprints abound
within this movie millions love.
The plot is holy ground!
