Beauty, Light and Music

Beauty, Light and Music can lift our hearts and souls.
When we’re feeling sad and sorry,
Whenever we’re completely stressed,
When our minds are full of worry,
By work or trouble over-pressed,
Beauty, Light and Music can lift our hearts and souls.Beauty, Light and Music square

 

Beauty’s all around us if we will only look.
The changing colours of the skies,
The rise and fall of moors and hills,
The light of love in smiling eyes,
Bright summer flowers on window sills,
Yes, Beauty’s all around us – we only need to look

Light’s mystery and wonder fuel the universe.
In dawns and sunsets, noontime’s blaze,
From moon and stars, or streetlight’s glow,
In Winter’s sparkle, Autumn’s haze,
From God above or us below,
Light’s mystery and wonder fuel the universe.

Music has a magic that reaches to the depths.
From Mozart, Beethoven or Byrd,
From nightingale or human song,
From the richness of a spoken word,
From river, lake, or ocean strong,
Music has a magic that reaches to the depths.

Beauty, Light and Music are the richest gifts of life;
Seen in mountains or a snowflake,
Fireflies bright or the Milky Way,
Ode to Joy or song of heartache,
There to be found each passing day
Are Beauty, Light and Music – the richest gifts of life.
