Colours painted in the sky,
Beauty in the air revealed
God’s promise to both you and me
Man’s separation has been healed.
Blue sky above, blue sky beneath,
And ‘twixt the two a verdant green
Of grassy hills and leafy trees,
A calm, serene and pastoral scene.
The unspoiled beauty of nature
Is fast becoming a stranger
To city children who live and play
In concrete boxes stacked up high.
