The tranquil peace of early morn
The sunrise in the sky
The new day greets us with the dawn
And lifts our gaze on high.

For when the sun has risen high
And then begins to sink
God paints the sky a fiery red
Which fades to gentle pink.

As darkness falls and stars appear
It is a wondrous sight
The universe spread out above
A mass of twinkling light.

Such beauty, not of human hand
Is there for us to see
All nature is so wonderful
The cost is nil, all free.
