Simple Things

Today I listened
To the song of a bird
I listened intently
As the whole earth stirred.

I bent my ear
To the whistle of the wind
I found God today
Everywhere I have been.

I saw Him today
In a weather worn face
I met Him today
In every place.

Upon a flower
God had placed a bloom
It made me smile
For yet, more beauty did loom.

Right before my eyes
I saw the work of His hand
The beauty spread out
All across His land.

The whole earth
With His beauty did stir
In His glory and majesty;
Yet, in simple it were.
