The Glory

by Bill Dotson

Upon a mountain years ago 
Moses asked his God to show.
But God said, “I cannot comply,
For none can see, lest they would die.”
So, God hid Moses in a safe place,
So not to look on God's pure face… The glory.

Some shepherds in a field at night
Suddenly beheld a glorious sight.
An angel appeared with some great news
“The Savior is born, go see if you choose.”
The shepherds were bathed in that heavenly light
They all were amazed with their visit that night… The glory!

Wise men from the East came from afar,
They followed a bright and shining star.
To a house in Bethlehem they were led
To find a sweet child as he lay in his bed.
They laid down their gifts and looked at his face,
Could they see the Savior of all in this place? The glory.

We raise our eyes to a starlit sky,
The smile of a baby sometimes makes us cry.
The beauty of mountains or sand on the shore,
Sunrise or sunset, a rainbow and more.
And God made us so all could see
His love displayed in you and me. The glory!
