Beauty's Benevolence







Within this world of woe
And fear
And grief
And doubt
And pain
And hurt
God bends the earth
With beauties dear
And wreaths with bloom
Its solemn dirt
So we may smile and hope
And sing
And love
And laugh
And dream
And trust
The hand that lends
The bloom that bends
With beauty: He tends
Mortal Must

... where care 
and prayer 
and tear
and stare
Are intertwined with mercy’s art
Of sky 
And sea 
And sod 
Designed
By the kind Healer of the heart

What hope, 
Hurt
Happiness and 
Hunger is ours
In earth's
Holy
Humble
Heaven-ness of flowers

  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. 
Psalm 96:11-12
