God's Country

As I sit here on the side of this mountain
and I see all this beauty before me,
the majesty of the trees are surrounding me,
I can hear the birds singing their tunes
and I see a deer or two, frolicking on their way,
while I see a bear cub at play
with mommy on its way.

I see a beautiful waterfall
falling into a small stream
as a rainbow shines its beams,
into the mist I see wild horses
stop for a drink.

Oh such radiance, peacefulness and purity
there is in nature,
I just have to wonder and think.
If there was no God,
then where did all this beauty come from?
Can we believe that maybe this is a little part of heaven?
Or is it just a dream?
This place is nothing that I've ever seen!

God's Country I will call this place,
for I believe that heaven does exist
and the Lord our God is giving us a piece of it,
all we have to do is take a moment and find these places,
and make it a place all our own.
A place where serenity flows,
a place we call home.
