I See

I see the stars hanging high above me extending unto ends of time
And I know that is how much higher Godís thoughtís are above mine.
I see the flowers of the valley painted so lovingly by Your brush
They have beauty and awesome wonder enough to make anyone blush.

I see volcano rise up full of great power and unstoppable might
And I stand in awe that by the power of Your word, You made the night.
I see all the plants and animals that with love you wove together
Each one prized, different, special, and unique unlike any other.

I see life so abundant and free playing a game of tag among the reefs
And I know that You want me to be joyful and free of all grieves.
I see the many grains of sand stretched across the ocean floor
And I am aware just how many blessing you would lay at my door.

I see the magnificent mountain tall; proud lift their eyes to You
And fall down to the valley bowing in shame before the glory of You.
I see the angels worshiping before the light of Your righteousness
And I canít begin to comprehend Your glory or Your holiness.

I see the brilliant sunrise and dance against the sky calling a new day.
It calls to us to look up toward heaven, as if saying this is the way.
I see the nails that pierced and old rugged cross upon a lonely hill
And there they stuck the heart and hand of the one who paid my bill.

But for the life of me I cannot see why you would love one such as me.
Knowing full well that I and I alone deserved to be upon that tree.
I see love spilled out beyond my wildest dreams, and all reason
And for that, I will forever love you no matter what the season.

This piece is beautiful as well. You may want to come in and add some white space. Just by dividing it into stanzas, and double-spacing will make it more appealing at first glance and people will be less likely to skip over it. The message is too important for people to skip over it.
