Eerie mist blankets the road,
Golden sunlight bursting through
A forest draped in silv’ry gauze
Midst pre-dawn stillness and dew,
He is there, watching o’er us.
At sunrise sisters journey through the woods,
Blades of grass bend beneath their running tread,
They stop to gather flower and feather,
And watch the deer and her kin far ahead.
And He is there, before us.
Grey fog rises from the field of dreams,
Color streaks the sky beyond the hay
Her words are filled with His truth and love,
To spur me to His presence this day.
And He is there, among us.
The splendor of the mid-day sun,
The high mountain shows her beauty,
As clouds soar across sapphire sky –
Whisper their Creator’s glory.
And He is there, its Maker.
A walk at dusk in cool summer air,
Pause to gaze at purple columbines,
Stop to behold the sunset mountain.
Watch graceful buck as on hay he dines.
And He is there, whose glory they show.
In the quiet of day’s closing hours,
In this one tender heart prayers are made,
With hopes, and longings, and “Father, please!”
Seek communion with Him and His aid:
And He is there, to comfort.
In the dark of midnight, shadows walk barefoot
Across dew-laden grass to moonlit meadows
The figures stop and consider the heavens
And rejoice in the stars and joys He endows.
And He is there, for us to worship.
The mist covers them as they speak,
And their speech soon turns into song,
Harmonies drift across night air,
“Holy, holy,” they proclaim e’re long.
And He is there, the vastness filling.
Wet with dew, they rise and journey homeward,
The words of hymns still falling from their soul,
Hearts filled with adoration for the One –
The One beyond comprehension – Behold!
He, far greater than the things He has made –
We understand not, and so – we worship.
