I awakened this morning and looked all around
I wanted to share with you the comfort I’d found.
In the smallest of ways on the happiest days
A great flock of birds seemed to be chirping God’s praise,
I laughed hard at their breadth but disturbed not their song
And wished with the whole of my heart I could belong.
Then I suddenly thought of that first holy night
And all the creatures of God that witnessed the sight
What a wonder it was, what a glorious gift
With the power to heal and the will to uplift.
The beasts of the fields welcomed His coming to earth
While the stars in the sky celebrated His birth !
