Hidden – Colors

Hidden

God hides for a season
The beauty of leaves
Beneath the chlorophyll,
So that He can delight
Our eyes in the fall
And give us a colorful thrill!


Colors

A bright golden hue
The earth lush and green
The sky softer blue
But His most precious color
Is the deep crimson red
That flowed from Christ’s side
His feet, hands and head.

Then showed how much He loves and cares,

The power of lightning and thunder.

God turns a worm into a butterfly,
And gives flight to the honey bee.

There is beauty in the mind of Jesus,
It’s made manifest by His creation,
For on that glorious dawn of this age,
The Morning Star sang with elation.

Dust and Destiny

God formed the first man
From the dust,
As an earthen vessel of clay,
Then blew in his nostrils
The breath of life,
His image to set on display.

As a Master Artist
Shows his passion for life,
On canvas, gold, silver or stone,
So the Lord demonstrated
His wisdom and love,
By not leaving His vessel alone.
