I Walk in a Song



I Walk in a Song
  
   
I walk in a song,
  
But there’s no music,
  
It’s in my mind.
  
  
  
Blue skies, birds,
  
The Yellow Sea;
  
Blessings of mine.
  
  
  
Fountains and waterfalls,
  
Cuckoo Birds,
  
And textured rocks.
  
  
  
The searing sun,
  
Gardens abounding,
  
Morning rain.
  
  
  
The people! The people!
  
The people! The people!
  
Children of Eden.
  
  
  
The music abounds,
  
But there’s no notes;
  
God’s creation.
  
  
  
I walk in a song
  
It flows around and through and in and out,
  
Within my spirit and through my mind,
  
With all my heart and soul I sing:  
  
GOD BLESS CHINA!
