Nature's Greatest Gift

Nature's Greatest Gift


Nature's greatest glory.

is the breaking of the dawn.

The diurnal story

Of the sunrise

And a new day being born.

Then through freshly opened eyes

The golden God of Heaven

Rules the morning skies.

As the light is quickened

And the birds begin to sing.

The whole earth rejoices

Bringing life to everything,

A multitude of voices

Rises with the growing light

Heralding the morning ,

Piping away the night,

Adding glory to the dawning

Of a new day, sunshine bright.

Then he who is truly wise

knows himself in Paradise

And worships life through new-born eyes

with reverence at each sunrise.
