There Is a Voice
There is a voice within the wind;
It seems to call to me:
"Come, leave behind your earthly cares,
And set your spirit free!"
Now, answering, my joyful heart
Ascends above the world;
And soars o'er lofty mountaintops,
With golden wings unfurled.
There is a voice, within the rain;
It speaks to me of peace:
"Surrender to my gentle touch,
And soon your fears shall cease!"
Caressing me, it fills my pores,
Descending through my skin;
And, as it soothes my weary soul,
A rainbow forms, within.
There is a voice, within the earth;
It bids me, "Celebrate;
For, spring is here, the world is green,
And summer's at the gate!"
My will renewed, my hope restored,
My cares and worries, gone;
With gratitude, I raise my voice,
To join in nature's song.
