...the beauty of the earth
the glory of the skies
the love which from our birth over and around us lies
...the wonder of each hour of the day and of the night
hill and vale and tree and flower
sun and moon and stars of light
...the joy of human love: brother, sister, parent, child
friends on earth and friends above
all gentle thoughts and mild
...You, best Gift divine to us so freely given
that great, great love of Thine
peace on earth and joy in heaven
Lord of all, to Thee we raise this
our hymn of grateful praise.
Struck here by the wonder of each hour. The way He lives and breathes and loves. His attention to our lives - even to the very moments of them - and again His great, great love.
Bearing witness to the things He has done: a covenant, answers, time, snow days, joy and peace. So many ways He has met us where we are with His best just in the last few days ♥
