Oh, Gift of Vision, in its aspect bright,©10/13/2015 Carol Welch
allowing me the light and shades and hues.
To take a pen and of its glory write,
color both to rest in and to use.
Gift of perspective of our time and place,
a new look, to open points of view.
Reality, to savor and to face,
creation's glory and our task to do.
Oh, that gracious, all encompassed Power,
motivated by His love of all the world,
the subtle changing of each day and hour,
the mellow rising moon, dawn's light unfurled.
And, oh, the eyes to see, the heart contain,
mysteries and sights and sounds displayed.
His ever-awesome, unrepressed domain,
in ordered month and week and day arrayed.
