Simple Joy (Mohlman)


Simple Joy (Mohlman)

Solos to Sing, Submitted Music (2012-present)

Watching the sun ascend on the horizon

Filling the sky with warmth and light,

Seeing the rays now bursting out of darkness

From the stillness of thy night,

Feeling the early moning’s whisper

Brushing the shadows from my eyes

Slowly I sense the quiet grandeur

That suddenly feels like a surprise.

Simple joy quiet morning

Gentle peace fills the air.

When I sense simplicity’s abundance

I simply know that God is there.

 

Hearing the flowing sound of nature’s presence

Singing a song of sweet refrain,

Listening for the whispers of my heart song

In the early morning rain,

Calling to me the melodies o wonder

Weaving a tapestry of sound,

Listening carefully to hear the music

Written wherever grace is found.

Simple joy quiet music

Fills my soul, fills the air.

When I sense simplicity’s abundance

I simply know that God is there.

 

Suddenly seeing, buried in the garden

Tiniest petals covering the earth,

Wondering how I ever missed their beauty

Or ever wondered of their worth,

Brilliantly blue, the hue that mirrors heaven

“Forget me not” they seem to cry.

Hidden among the orchids and the roses

Elegant beauty come to life.

Simple joy quiet beauty

Gentle grace everywhere.

As I sense simplicity’s abundance

I simply know that God is there.

I simply know that God is there.
