Lord, I See You
Lord, I see you in the green cathedral
of majestic, aged trees,
and in every sparkling dewdrop
falling from their leaves.
I hear your voice in rippling water,
the sweet music of the streams,
and in the roar of waterfalls
that echo in my dreams.
I feel your touch in the playful breeze
that gently caresses me,
and in the warmth of the summer sun
or the wind we cannot see.
I see you in the yellow buttercup
and in the spiders jewelled web,
in the wax and waning of the moon
and the tides that flow and ebb.
I hear you in the thunder
that crashes overhead,
and in the still, small voice
that lives inside my head.
Your presence is all around me,
in everything I see and hear,
and the beauty of your creation
shows me you are near.
Let the sounds of adulation
make all creation ring,
as mountains stand in awe of you
and men and angels sing.
