ALBERT'S DRY BONES

My ship reached your lush and comforting shore, But my flesh had no more left than dry bones. And these bones could remember no more The warm breezes that now gave unheard moans. But GOD can make these dry bones live, As Ezekiel saw in Babylon one airy day. And my dry bones seek for GOD to give A body divine in which they desire to stay, And roam the mountains that cool the air, Collecting fruit so lavish and so ripe. With clear eyes to enjoy a view lovely and fair, I inhabit a world of freshness and beauty of every type. So dry bones no more, by Omnipotence’s grace, Nature’s bliss I now see well face to face.
