My heart sighs with pleasure as I look upon your grace.

How my soul has longed to find this holy place,

And watch your cascading flow give birth to healing rainbows;

Godís promises that wipe away all of lifeís petty hurts and woes,

And smell the fragrant flowers nourished by your loving mist

Blooming in the supple earth by your magic kissed.

To hear the thundering whisper of lifeís quickening essence

Come tumbling down from the heights to find its absolute quintessence.

Would that I could laze my days within your life giving bower,

And taste forever the delicate freshness of your purifying power.
