A Moment of Joy

by: Donald A. MacCord

The beams of light from heaven did play
And laid their warmth upon my breast.
My mind and soul and heart at rest,
As I looked upon the fields of hay.

The distant mountains clothed in purple and grey
Their mighty peaks shined forth like golden crowns
And to all who could see they seemed to say,
'Be at peace, carry ne'er a frown".

My spirit leapt forth in this moment of joyful play
In this time and in this place I could forever stay
Far from the trials of daily strife and fray,
For here was a testament of God's mighty way.
