The Grace of Maples

God’s grace
awash with color
showering down on us
even in their dying

The maples singing
all of creation alive
singing praises to the creator
in wonders to our eyes

God’s grace
apparent in this season
in the colors of nature
showering down on us

Love pouring from heaven
always with us
guiding if we would let him
in his warm embrace

God’s grace calling
in the singing of the maples
the bright colors of their dying
reminding us of him

His sacrifice complete
pure, while we were sinners
glorious in his dying
and grace in his rising
that we would see eternity
