Message Written in the Sky

From the rising of the sun
   in all attendant glory
the gift-wrappings of the day
   unfolding nature's story.

With brightness softly fusing
   into clouds afloat in space
dew drops, too, with seas reflecting
   dawn's majestic face.

The Lord has touched the fringes
   of earth's obedient sky
in the gilding of the morning
   when thoughtful hearts draw nigh.

Till daylight's azure dome
   puts on resplendent robes
and God with golden graces
   crowns this little globe.

As pink and mauve dim slowly
   softly closing of the day
He turns on His chandeliers
   to shine the gloom away.

How great is our Creator God
   Who reigns in Heaven above
giving sunrise and sunset beauty
   as a token of His love.
