Consider the lilies

From the September 1981 issue of The Christian Science Journal

God clothes us all
With ribbons of light:
The lilies so tall
The stars of the night

Waters with whitecaps
And mountains with snow
The perfume of pine sap
When forest winds blow

Sunshine following as
Wild storm clouds cease
Child crowned with laughter
Old faces with peace.

Each clothed with the glory
Of God's constant care
(True Genesis story)
All good, everywhere.

O lilies of light
Uncaptured by sod!
O man, not of night,
Consider thy God!
