Dawn on the South Downs’

By 26th July 2010December 9th, 2019No Comments

Over the south soft rolling hills of the South Downs,

Horizon wears beauty, as Royalty wear crowns,

As water-weak Sun streaks the pink-red morning skies,

In the far past distance, a cold Autumn night dies.

Dawn’s final destination of awakening,

As each tiny flower’s head its sleep forsaking,

Heralding in beauty of a soundless chorus,

Exposing now such magnificence before us.

Behold! the coming of a brand new day’s glory,

Telling of an awesome and magical story

For on the crest of our God’s own given power

We now stand strong together: A mighty Tower

A shining new day! And a glorious new Earth,

Born in magnificent glory, for all God’s worth.
