In full autumn splendour the trees display
proclaiming the glory of God each passing day.
For The Divine Artist every year paints each tree
so that all people on earth His glory can see.
And when He has finished painting each one
He brings out their colour with the blazing sun
and uses the wind to dislodge each leaf
to form a carpet on the ground beneath.
He has given us eyes so that we can see
His glory and majesty in every tree
and like an artist He uses His creation
to show all of us the way of salvation.
For as each leaf fell to the ground and died
so Christ gave His life when crucified.
His blood flows red like autumn leaves
and cleanses all who His love receives.
