Inspiration from a Tree

The Master made so many things

For human eyes to see;

The peaceful stream, the birds in flight,

And this majestic tree!

I look upon its beauty ,

With spreading branches wide.

Its shelters little ones who play,

And squirrels that nest inside.

This tree tells me a story;

Its Maker lives on High.

The limbs reach upward;

They point me to the sky.

So when my soul is weary,

And grief is pressing in,

I reach my hand toward Heaven—

God’s peace is born within.
