Could the sky be more blue?
It’s so clear today
Could the flowers be a more lovely hue?
They are at their peak today
All the greens seem even more so
Verdant boughs with fruit
Plump lemons swing to and fro
Cherries wear a bright red suit
Palm tree’s hands reach up high
As if to praise our King of kings
Thanking Him with each sway and sigh
While a bird to His glory sings
This garden visit lifts my soul
With the palms and birds I praise
Lord Jesus makes me whole
To Him my hands I raise!
