Heavenly Harmony - Poem by Royston Allen

With nimble fingers dashing across the keyboard
they created melody with every chord.
My soul was lifted to heaven as they began
their duet on the piano and church organ.

'Praise God, ' I said hearing the melodious sound
bringing joy to us all as we gathered around.
Joining in with our voices as we sang and praised
and to heavens' mighty throne our anthem we raised.

'Thank You Lord, ' for the many gifts you have given
and bestowed upon mere mortal men and women,
so that we can gather together in Your name
and with glorious harmony Your praise proclaim.

Earth was kissing heaven and heaven kissing earth
as we sang out our praise with such gusto and mirth.
We were in complete unity as we declared
our love to You in that time together we shared.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Written in thanks for the 'Evening of Praise'
to the pianist and organist who 'braved the elements' and came out
to play the music at the Guild meeting for us.
