The Glory of God
When I see the morning sun, rise
up in the east -
I think of the LOVE in You;
When it sets in the west with miraculous colour -
I think of the "I AM" in You.
When the bright stars twinkle throughout
the night -
The GLORY of God shines through;
When the moon ("Lamp of the Poor") is lit -
I think of the WONDER of You.
When nature is reborn in the spring
of the year -
I think of the LIFE in You;
When summer shows its myriad of colour -
I think of the LIGHT in You.
When days grow shorter, preparing
for rest -
I think of the WISDOM of You;
When a blanket of white protects from the cold -
I think of PEACE from You.
When I count my many blessings
at the end of the day -
of ALL that God can do;
When I feel Your love, Your wisdom, and peace,
It's because I am thinking of You.
