Why Do We See Beauty?

Why Do We See Beauty?

By Lorraine J. Anderson

Does the tiger see beauty?

Does the bee gaze at the sea?

Does the woodchuck write poetry?

Does the lemur paint trees?

Lord, grant that we may always see

All that You have created us to be.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

No, we smell the fragrant flowers,

We sail the deep blue seas,

We create songs and poetry,

We gaze at red tinged autumn trees.

Lord, grant that we may always see

All that You have created us to be.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

But why do we like poetry?

Why does art inspire Romance?

Why do we sing rolling operas?

Why do we engage in the dance?

Lord, grant that we may always see

All that You have created us to be.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Lord, You have painted the sunrise.

My Lord, You have created the poetry.

My Lord, You have written the songs.

My Lord, You have created all for us to see.

Lord, grant that we may always see

All that You have created us to be.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We thank You, Lord, for letting us see,

The beauty that you have created us to be.

Amen.
