There’s Beauty

“There’s beauty in a soughing wind—
Its merry whistles, mournful sighs;
There’s joy exquisite in a rain
That shoots in sheets from leaden skies.

“There’s beauty in a sparrow’s call
Trilled crystal-sweet from tree to tree;
There’s awe in furious white-lipped waves
That boil inland from the sea.

“There’s beauty in the blinding calm
Of snow, after the blizzard’s rage;
There’s glamor in the changeful tale
Of every season’s turning page.

“There’s beauty in a woodland stream
That bubbles blithe in solitude;
There’s wonder in an urban oak
Thick-thriving mongst the multitudes.

“There’s beauty in a newborn’s wails
Which herald triumph of new life;
There’s thrill sublime in victory shouts
That shake the ground late won in strife.

“There’s beauty in a sweetheart’s eyes
That snatch first sight of her beloved;
There’s sweetness in the impish grins
Of little ones by play begrubbed.

“There’s beauty in a sinner’s tears
That plead from sin to be removed;
There’s glory in a ransomed soul
Which from all fear of death is soothed.

“There’s beauty in God’s Holy Word—
Its wondrous work in lives remiss;
There’s marvel in a mighty GOD
Whose love has given us all of this!”
