I see God in reflections
Of the world's most wondrous scenes;
The mountain crested yet in white,
In waters still and serene.
And yet, in small and minute things,
His signature is there;
As sure as blazing sunsets write
His Name high in the air!
I see Him in the soaring wings
Of eagles in their flight
And wonder how He taught them
To ride the winds so high.
A dew drop or a snowflake,
Butterfly or song of bird;
Distinct, each one, in tune, in time ~
Created by His word!
But, when a baby's tiny eyes
Look up into your own,
Innocence reflecting Love;
Purity, only God knows ...
It wakes desire within our hearts
For the time the angels come
To meet us at the Jordan;
To take us safely Home ...
To make us stop for a moment,
While on Jordan's banks we be,
And hope in, our own reflection,
The face of Jesus to see!
