When Time Stands Still

When time stands still, upon the world

Echoing valleys, the mountain’s birth

As time stands still, witness

Nature blessed beyond

The heart and eye doth see –

The sands of times rejoicing

How God gave this to me!


When time stands still, the eagles sore

High into the sky,

Stretching forth in noon day sun

Her warmth, everlasting glory.

Now time delights in shades of golden dusk,

Eagles winged, now rests

As time sleeps, now her best

Hushed and still ‘til dawn

When bathed in Grace of God

And Love.
