O paradise splendor

December 27, 2016 - Quotes

As I lift my gaze, to distant fields I look

I behold the flowers in season bloom

And the birds all singing from trees a tune

With kids skipping from hill to hill

O paradise splendor, a home like none


Fresh streams running and down they flow

From grandiose mountains, all crowned with snow

And thirst and hunger I never have known

I flourish and harvest, for my barns are grown

O paradise splendor, a home like none


With fear and sweat, from sleep I woke

‘Twas all but dreams, the fields the home

My aches, my pains all proof I know

The home I owned not long ago

O paradise splendor, O paradise lost
