The Sunrise

The Sunrise from on High
has visited us!

The perfection of beauty
God has shone forth!

The brightest star in the universe
beneath the star of Bethlehem.

A ray of sunlight in the world
visiting pots of clay
chasing away the dark of night
bringing the dawn - a new day!

How perfect our beauty will be
if what we create gives light
for "wise men" to follow and see.
