Of Glimpses and God

When I see dawn dissolve night’s shore
Rolling glad light across earth’s slope
Filling the morning with new hope
I think there must be something more

The awe of God as we look deep
Into the wonder of a flow’r
Assures me of a Higher Pow’r
Above this thorn and thistle sweep

The perfect course of sun and moon
The galaxies beyond our reach
The creatures that no man can teach
And yet they know just what to do

…or as I see earth’s season yield
To its successor year on year
And flowers fall to reappear
From seed to fill ten-thousand fields…

Then I perceive a Higher Love
It leaves imagination mute
Controlling laws none can dispute
And we see merely glimpses of…

 And these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! Who then can understand the thunder of his power?" Job 26:14
