Vast Gifts

The shining seas, the land that lies between
how vast the richness that we have received,
each parcel endowed with awesome scene,
we could not through reason have conceived.

The harvest fields unveiled before our eyes,
the river flashing as it outruns stones,
the pictures formed by clouds in azure skies
the bird above cries out in unbound tones

And we, with eyes and heart equipped to soar,
partake of nature's bounty, carefree grace.
endowed, as well, a hand to take, and more,
to find rapport within another's face.

The Father God, who made the sky and pond,
grants us both awe and aptitude to bond.
