Taste of Heaven

by Mark Weinrich

Night cannot stay the saber-rays of light,
though feelings forecast clouds and looming fear,
though stumbling doubts and darkness veil our sight,
the dawn will prove our Lord is ever near.
As bird songs break night in celebration,
the flames of sunrise sweep the ashen sky
and thanksgiving sings with expectation
for goodness of our God is magnified.

In facets of His grace, both great and small,
in mountains majestic and dew aglow,
in shimmer of mercy for one or all,
in mirrored lakes and the glitter of snow.
In all, I exalt at His wonders given,
amazed with joy in this taste of heaven.
