I see you in the vast, blue sky,
The sun, the moon, and stars,
The galaxies and Milky Way,

As I read through you Word.
I smell you in the air I breathe,
Among the pines and firs

And tell you I am yours.
I feel your presence in my life.
You’re everywhere, it’s clear.
From all that you have given me
Your love for me’s most dear.
