THE RAINBOW

FIRST THE RAIN FALLS FREELY DOWN;

ALL THE GREEN EARTH TO ADORN.

MIRACULOUSLY, ACROSS THE CLEARING SKY,

A BIG, BEAUTIFUL, BRIDGE IS BORN!

 

THE RAINBOW SPANS ONE WHOLE SECTION,

BOTH ENDS TOUCHING DOWN, ON DISPLAY.

A VAST ARC OF BRILLIANT BEAUTY,

VIVID COLORS IN UNIFORM ARRAY!

 

REACHING HIGH THROUGH THE HEAVENS,

A TRAIL OF RED, PINK AND BLUE;

YELLOW, GREEN, PURPLE AND ORANGE,

A CREATION OF A WONDROUS VIEW!

 

A PROFOUND, AWE-INSPIRING SIGHT!

HOW IS IT FASHIONED TO BE?

WHERE DO THE COLORS COME FROM?

WHAT FORCE HOLDS IT, HANGING FREE?

 

IT'S GODS' PROMISE TO THE WORLD;

IN NOAHS' TIME, THE PROMISE MADE.

NEVERMORE, THE EARTH TO BE FLOODED!

NEVER AGAIN, ALL LIFE BE SLAYED!

 

THE SILENT RAINBOW SLOWLY FADES,

COLORS EVAPORATING IN THE LORDS' DOMAIN.

THIS GLORIOUS SYMBOL OF GODS' POWER,

WILL SURELY RETURN, NEXT RAIN!
