Thankful: Snow

The snow falls down

In a blanket of white

To make cold the earth

And to make sparkle the night

And I wonder why it overcomes our minds

Some in joy

Some in sadness now

.

In the cold air I breathe

In the grey sky I see

Something worth being thankful for

In the heavy snow I make a path

And as I walk down it I do the math

There is something here worth

Being thankful for

.

I am thankful for the glitter and gold

I am thankful for when the stars unfold

I am thankful for the path given me

I am thankful for this vision of eternity

Your vision of eternity

.

There will be crowns of glory

Glittering on our heads

There will be a rainbow of wonder

Surrounding You, our LORD

We will fall down and worship

On the crystal sea

We will worship the One who’s given freely

Oh I worship You LORD for all You are to me

.

And I know that my family

Now gone to Heaven before me

They are singing Your praises

And are happy forever

I can’t wait to join them on that side

I can’t wait to see them as the apple of Your eye

I can’t wait to see You as the apple of our eyes

.

Yes I’m thankful for this vision of Heaven

You’ve given me

In the glitter of the snow

And the grey of the sky

And the path You’ve made for me

1After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” 2At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. 3And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne. 4Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads. 5From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spiritsa of God. 6Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.

In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. 7The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. 8Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying:

“ ‘Holy, holy, holy

is the Lord God Almighty,’b

who was, and is, and is to come.”

9Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, 10the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:

11“You are worthy, our Lord and God,

to receive glory and honor and power,

for you created all things,

and by your will they were created

and have their being.”

~Revelation 4
