Supreme Gift

I've studied steeples piercing the sky 
As it called to the people to cross 
The threshold of denomination, 
And stood mystified 
By the extravagant architecture 
Where I was told 
You could be found, 
Waiting in solemn patience. 

I've seen cathedrals dressed in gold, 
Adorned by silver chalice 
And stunning images smothering the ceiling 
While beneath my feet lay a ruby floor. 
Crystal studded windows filtered sunlight, 
Icons surrounding me, 
And I marveled at all man had constructed 
In the name of worship. 

Yet, when my eyes returned 
To the temple you built, 
Filled with paintings 
Of  praiseworthy blue sculpting
Shades of improbable green, 
I knew You could be found 
In the breathtaking paradise 
You created for us. 

So I knelt near the river, 
Listening to your pure voice 
As I was acknowledged and embraced 
By your sweet song, 
And understood the red path I follow. 
All the tremendous dwellings assembled 
Could never compare with 
Your supreme gift.
