Diamonds In The Sky


The bright sun rises above the earth like a sparkling jewel
Shines its lights with such radiance and warms the air

Then sets in the west to make a way for the luminous moon
That casts its brilliant shadows all through the night

Her Heavenly glow is hidden so that the bright stars can shine
They display their twinkling lights to brighten the universe

Beautiful and radiant clouds suddenly turns blue to gray
Shedding their tears with raindrops that falls softly upon the earth

Saturating the parched ground with its life sustaining water
The rainbow appears in majestic splendor after the rain

Shaped like an arc through the skies with its splash of colors
Reaching across the Heavens like a painters work of fine art

Draping the sky like a portrait that's painted by the hands of God
Reaches to the end of the earth like a flashing diamond in the sky

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

Laughter and hearts so high
