If a nightingale sing

If a sycamore leaf spin

If a salmon leap

If a tortoise sleep


make your careful way with awe

by appreciating God’s creation

do nothing to alter nature’s course

but with child’s eye

let your wonder arise


do not merely sustain yourself,

grabbing what you need

but find time to perceive the world He made,

take in its beauty and form


therefore let the Lord speak to you

through the things that He’s created

and give praise to the man upstairs

for the perfection of the picture He’s painted
