Beauty

By Vance Oliphant


We are surrounded by beauty on every side;  
Put there by God...spread far and wide.  

A Christmas tree; new fallen snow;
 
A baby's smile; a sunset's glow.  

A gentle rain; the sparkle of dew;
 
The love your family gives to you.  

Majestic mountains; a bright blue sky;
 
A rippling stream; a firefly.  

A soft caress; a kiss with love;
 
The million stars that shine above.  

Northern lights; the harvest moon;
 
Children's laughter; the call of a loon.  

The sound of a dove in the early morn;
 
The awe one feels when a child is born.  

The way a loved one lights up a room;
 
The sight and aroma of flowers in bloom.  

A fluffy white cloud; early morning fog;
 
Flickering light from a fireplace log.  

Tree covered hills; a river bend;
 
The trust and love of a very good friend.  

A shimmering lake; a waterfall;
 
A flag unfurled; a garden wall.  

So look around and become aware,
 
Of all God's beauty we can share.
