Above the misty mountain peaks
The sun climbs once more,
Spreading its warmth across the land
And onto the forest floor.
Dark ferns raise their arms
To capture the golden rays
Filtering through the trees
Where a gentle breeze plays.
Sparrows, Thrush and Robins,
Grosbeaks, Titmouse, all on the wing
Blending their songs in harmony
With praises to heaven sing.
I wander there in solitude
Far from the cities mournful sighs
Where scenes of natures beauty
Unfold before my eyes.
I join nature in her praises
Giving thanks to God above
For the serenity of the forest
That displays His wondrous love.
I see it in each flower that blooms
Hear it from each bird that sings.
I feel it in the gentle breeze
For His love made these things.
My soul responds to the beauty
Of nature that surrounds me there.
Deep within my forest cathedral
I walk with God in prayer.
