[Written for the Sentinel.]

Vision Beautiful

The sun is always shining
And the sky is always blue,
For our vision of the beautiful
Is one with what is true,
As the prayer of understanding
Pierces through the clouds of sense,
And our hearts sing at the knowledge
Of God's omnipotence.

Our God is always with us,
Though in times of stress and strain
We may not feel His presence,
As the sun is hid by rain;
But the Love that lights the universe
And marks the sparrow's fall,
Though at times we may forget this,
Is forever All-in-all.
