Treasures of Light

adorned I be in gems of light
the diamonds of day, the diamonds of night
the sun in its brilliant hue
the stars in sparkle ever new
the moon in its wax and wane
from which the magical bears its name
glitter, sparkle, gems they be
the rain upon the leaves of the tree
glitter, sparkle, gems they be
snow crystals falling, falling upon me
each season, time, and place
a gem, a gem within heart to place
and from the earth deep, and richly endowed
a gem, a crystal, a mineral, to hold a vow
treasures of light shall ever they be
from CREATION, from CREATION onto Thee.
