I love God’s beautiful world,
The sunshine on the lake,
The towering mountains
so strong and protective,
The stillness of the shady woods,
The wild flowers along the lane.
They all boast unashamedly
of God’s glory.
Rivers and streams speak
of his overflowing love.
The birds sing out his praises.
They have no problem
accepting God’s goodness and love.
They live for today,
not knowing what tomorrow may bring.
I too am part of your creation.
Help me to accept your goodness and love,
to live for today,
and to believe that I too
am as precious to you
as your beautiful world.
