Today we leave the city behind
The streets all crowded, no one will mind.
Country life is where we long to be.
The chaos is fading, oh to be free.
The clearest of blue dances in the sky.
Gives way to the black of night with a sigh.
Under the covers live dreams of release.
For humans we are, with love to increase.
We rise at daybreak to white light, surrounded by love.
The sounds of the forest lift us over and above.
The creatures abound with joy non cease.
This is God’s house, His masterpiece.
