See God

See God
(Colossians 1:17) *

If we want to see God
We can see Him in each other
Every place in the mall
He is All and in all

If we want to hear God
We can hear Him in the bird's song
In the sounds that enthrall
He is All and in all.

If we want to scent God
We can scent Him in gardenias
In the fragrance recall
He is All and in all

If we want to taste God
We can taste Him in the tree fruits
In the bounty of fall
He is All and in all

If we want to touch God
We can touch Him in the Redwood
In forests He stands tall
He is All and in all
* "...by Him all things consist"
