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!


God paints the clouds
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.
