I stand by the river, flowing with grace and might,
It inspires me to be forever in motion within, yet stable outside.
When I think of the times I have learnt anew, turned a new leaf,
Those times when I moved within yet the world saw me the same,
I realize I have been no different from the river flowing beside.
I tell the river – “He who made me made Thee!”
I watch the trees grand and tall in all majesty, yet ever willing to give,
They inspire in me that I am but a speck in the vast creation.
When I think of the times when, to someone less fortunate,
I gave my grace, I felt I only did what I should and shared what was never mine,
Those times when I gave away with happiness and no other ambition.
I tell the trees – “He who made me made Thee!”
I feel the wind blow with all freshness and life,
It inspires in me to look for a life of peace and cheer.
When I recall those times when I walked on life’s thorns,
Yet I kept thinking of the wonder that lay at the path’s end,
Those times when I moved with hope and all dread did clear.
I tell the wind – “He who made me made Thee!”
I see the huge mountains standing tall and forever,
They inspire in me to be firm in beliefs which I know are eternal.
When situations caused grief and conflict in my mind,
And I was rattled by the pains I was seeing in and around,
Yet knowing that all will pass and cheer and grief are but an illusion.
I tell the mountains – “He who made me made Thee!”
I see the sky, holding the sun, moon and stars, with no end,
It inspires in me to know I have no limits to stretch myself.
When I look back on those times I thought I had no more endurance,
I thought I could not go beyond the matters in hand, yet I did,
With perseverance I expanded the limits I had set for myself.
I tell the sky – “He who made me made Thee!”
I watch Nature with all its endless wonders,
Each one inspires me to take its best to shape my life.
I remember when I need to learn, I need to grow,
Nature helps me see myself, as I am and as I need to be,
It shows to me to move towards tranquility, subduing inner strife.
I tell Nature – “He who made me made Thee!”
