The Sights and Sounds of You, O God

The Sights and Sounds of You, O God

 

The sights and sounds of You, O God,

The sights and sounds of You,

Your bolts of light dash through space,

Heralds of mercy’s hues.

 

The sights and sounds of You, O God,

The sights and sounds of You,

Agnostics and atheists do espy.

What hearts already knew.

 

Rapids thrash and tides behave,

While man finds shadows in his cave,

And though “Billions” of galaxies” wait outside,

Man into darkness burrows his grave.

 

Ecosystems, single cell to upright and spry.

Genomes and hormones and tears when you cry –

Life is the sight and sound of You, O Lord

Life is Your wonders yet to be explored.
