Beauty and Splendor

The beauty spread for you to see
Across the land, sky and sea
Are glimpses of God’s majesty
And creative power that caused all things to be.

Whenever you watch the clouds drift by
Or view the stars in a moonlit sky,
Remember the One who reigns on high,
Hears each prayer and mournful sigh.

As the darkness slowly turns to light
Reveling the wonders within your sight,
As the sunshine touches you, warm and bright,
Be filled with the strength of God’s power and might.

In the splendor of creation when you look around,
In the music of life and each joyful sound,
In the rushing water, blue skies and the ground,
Glimpses of God’s grace are waiting to be found.

How anyone can look at the beauty of the world and not see God's creation is beyond me.
