Beauty

The beauty in the waterfalls, the rippling of the water,

The sound of God’s creation and the majesty within her

 

The singing of the birds, and the rustling of the trees,

The color of the flowers and the buzzing of the bees

 

The smile of a mother when she holds her baby close,

The tender touch of others, and the petals of a rose

 

The magic of the sunset, and the light after the rain,

The joy that’s found in Jesus, a joy that never fades

 

The fire in determined eyes, the strength of bold heart’s flame,

The hope that never dies, the power that’s never tamed

 

The sacrifice of love, the sharing without reluctance,

The giving of great rarity, the standing for importance

 

True beauty is this: the love in others’ eyes,

To give without receiving, and lips that never lie

 

It’s the beauty in the sky, the wonder in the stars,

The awe in God’s mercy, and His arms never far.
