Way up in the heavens the stars shine clear and bright
And though it is the night-time, my life is full of light
For standing in my garden here I've had a moments worth
Of good will to all men and peace upon the earth.
No it is not Christmas so my words seem out of place
But for just these few minutes I feel in a state of grace
All my sins forgiven, my trespasses absolved,
All my hurts are healed, all my problems solved.
I feel if could touch the world and share the way I feel
Then all the half felt dreams of men would suddenly be real
Everyone would have enough and greed would not prevail
Every deed would be rewarded, evil would always fail.
I'll hold on to this moment and store it in my heart
And take it out and look at it when my life falls apart
To feel new strength flow though me as I know that I can be
Truely content with myself at last and happy to be me.
Thanks to Clover and Kathy for the inspiration of their garden.
