The Face Of God
The grandeur of God
by Mary Chris Halm
Is like the purple on the mountain tops
Regal in the golden sun. Its velveteen splendor
Reduces the oceans to a dull green
But sparkling reflections
Of celestial brilliance
Renew the splendor of the skies. No one knows the beauty
Of rich God-painted hues
So much as You
Oh, Creator of all color
All substance, all being. I desire the thrill of autumn changes
The sparkle of the midnight sky
The powerful awe of the wind and rain.
I desire a touch of the Creator
The mental image of God Himself.
Alas, Nature reflects His beauty.
I come so close to seeing The Face of God.
