Waters bathe me in a loving embrace ever sweet
Touched by waters, this body and God's Grace meet
Cooling be the touch, nurturing be its flow
Upon farm lands, bounty to serve, to grow
Upon fields of grass, grain, and flowers in bloom to be
The delight of rain welcomed by all from sea to sea
Rain forests lush, jeweled in emerald green wondrous delight
Hold to the waters ever blessed by the glow of warming light
Shores caressed by waves cresting mighty and high
Behold the crowning rainbow across the lambent sky
Waters sigh and hold a promise ever new
This benevolence of Grace bestowed upon you.
