Heart curves to the Face of such beauty seen,
‘Tis Nature’s sweet bidding, these tender lights green.
that ease all burdens and grasping’s that lean,
This ancient cathedral of Gods’ sweet serene.
Come close and allow me to breathe all of You,
Love blesses each morning that sprinkles the dew,
I pray that Your wonders could wrap me full through,
Your Hidden – such Beauty; we are safe in Its pew.
Let me hear the whispers of how the wind sings,
I long to imagine the sweet chords that ring
as the Heavens fly through the trees tops soft swing.
I am wrapped in His Nature, such a winged joy’s King.

One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD And to meditate in His temple.
Your eyes will see the King in His beauty; They will behold a far-distant land.
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.
Silent O the morning
in light’s beautified slant
Each tree branch held bended
Leaves groomed as green lace
display sky and God’s breeze;
whispering prayers scent
Love’s aroma advent.
Surely for God,
only His, this for all.
Life swept aside
in the grandeur of the hours.
Silent hearts heightened
Holy reaching, towers to us
in the slant of light’s glimmer,
we are hallowed, we are tilled
at Glory’s day’s break, we are tended,
we are stilled.
Lend Holy song’s blush
In the grace of shade tree
Love reaches, falls softly
Upon prayer’s bended knee.

I am praying to you because I know you will answer, O God. Bend down and listen as I pray.
I love the Lord because he hears my prayers and answers them. 2 Because he bends down and listens, I will pray as long as I breathe!
O keep me in the nest of You
Don’t wake me ‘till the morning dew
Lest all might break the silence of
This sacred time in love’s sweet pew.
Here amidst sweet nature’s rest
I curl, entwine within your nest
Carried, protected, betrothed and Thine
My soul will keep in all Love’s Divine.
