To stand upon the beach at dawn
as evening tendrils linger on...
To see the tides both ebb and flow,
is to bask in Heaven's glow.
To wander in the forest fair,
commune with all of Nature there...
To listen with ears of the heart
is to dine on Heaven's carte.
To feel within, the stir of life,
the secret touch beyond all rife,
to play a role in creation's act,
is Heaven's most affirming fact.
To look into a baby's eyes,
to kiss its tears, comfort its cries...
To hold it close unto your breast
is to Heaven's thrill, attest.
To gaze upon a morning star,
hear God's whisper, from afar...
Feel the Spirit's sweet embrace,
is to gaze on Heaven's Face.
To see His Love in your sweet smile,
to feel His Presence in your style...
To hear your heart and thus, relate,
is to stand at Heaven's Gate.
