beauty I see
Taking my breath away.
Created by an awesome God
So gracious and kind
Revealing His majesty to mankind.
When the chilly fall wind embraces the trees
The emerald green of the leaves
Turn brilliant scarlet, amber and gold
Reflected in the vibrant blue of water below
Creating a masterpiece to behold
Straight from the palette of the Master's hand
Who strokes breathtaking color across the land.
Exquisite beauty I see
Laid out before you and me
And that is why
I could never deny
There is One greater than you and I
Who created it all
In a marvelous way
To inspire and bless every day,
Especially by the panorama often seen in the
