Spiritual Poem about Nature

I am a song writer and I wrote this as a song, but felt that the words were very much a work of poetry. We see God's handy-work all around us in nature, and I wanted the person hearing or reading these words to realize that.

Where Peaceful Waters Flow

©

Published: February 2011

The clouds break forth the streams of light
To dance upon the earth,
And cradled in the sands of time,
Comes a newborn baby's birth.
A gentle breeze blows through the night,
It whispers through the grass,
And ripples on the water form
As rain glistens on the glass.

And you listen to the sound,
The Lord's presence all around.
He summons us to go
Where peaceful waters flow.

A rainbow arcs across the sky,
A promise is displayed.
The graceful flight of a butterfly,
It takes my breath away.
The autumn leaves in their splendor
Fall gracefully to the earth,
And stars proclaim their song at night,
What is their beauty worth?

And you listen to the sound,
The Lord's presence all around.
He summons us to go
Where peaceful waters flow.
