I am gazing out the window
From this swiftly moving train.
Now the landscape shows a wonder
Human brushes cannot paint.
With one stroke the Master artist
Turns the desert fairy white
Just a cloud of snow to gently dust
All shrubs and grass and brownish earth.
Now His wand has changed the desert
From it’s drab and scarred debris.
And my mind beholds the hidden promise;
His touch can change both you and me!
