Amongst the trees I dwell
astray yet not lost, alone yet not lonely
Here I find myself as the universe
searches my inmost being

The face of glory is embedded in nature
always before our downcast eyes
A beacon that awakes our down cast souls
The dawn of awe within us

-I have fallen deep into my demise I have risen awakened by the sky

The wretched man I am
Shall exalt the book of nature
The oceans, forests and skies
From the depths of my being
I exalt the breath of nature
And now I give it my all

Serenity is within the grasp of my hand
As the wind wanders amidst the forest air
Darkness lies nearby as the Author of Death
Wanders amidst lands I dwell
Wickedness dwells within this shadow
Forever condemning this earth
To the plagues of this vile hatred
Even still the rise of splendor awaits

I lay my flesh upon the altar of this earth
The oak lays it’s leaves upon my lifeless body
Decay buried beneath the soil
My body becomes one with the earth

Beyond the stars I’m taken to a realm not like this earth.
Taken away like the deepest dream
And let my spirit rise and reach the ends
of space and time
Behold, a throne stands before me
Surrounded by clear oceans of glass
A vision of eternal resplendence
The face of glory, this eternal sight
