Greening of the Grass

Greening of the Grass


The rains come down oh so softly, steadily

The grass turns green as if dipped in dye

Browning lawns revive, flowers again begin to grow

All looks and feels more like Spring

August heat dissipates  with overcast skies

Enjoying the break in an August summer  while it is here


Thank the Lord for the much needed rain

These are showers of blessing

Oh, that our dried and whithering souls

May know the showers of His love

Brought by the Holy Spirit

All from the Father in Heaven above


Greening of the grass

Our spirits revived to go to a needy world

Dead in trespasses and sins

Suffering from the symptoms of Original Sin

A world from which we came by the grace of God

Giving back,  green with the chlorophyl of His love


Greening of the Grass (c)2007  Quentin Clingerman
