RISING MILES ABOVE THE EARTH;

SCATTERED AROUND THE WORLDS' GIRTH.

MOUNTAIN RANGES DOMINATE THE VIEW;

CRAGGY PEAKS PIERCING THE BLUE.

 

STAGGERING EXAMPLES OF GODS' CREATIONS;

THE ALPS, HIMALAYAS AND APPALACHIANS.

THE URALS, ROCKIES AND ANDES;

CASCADES, SIERRA MADRAS AND PYRENEES.

 

CLIFFS RISING UP TO WHITE SNOWCAPS;

SHEER RIDGES EXPOSING LOFY GAPS.

CLOUDS ENVELOPING THE MAJESTIC HEIGHTS;

TOWERING PALLISADES ARE STUPENDOUS SIGHTS!

 

WORLDWIDE ARE MOUNTAIN SIERRAS;

HAVE BEEN THROUGHOUT THE ERAS.

STRETCHING FOR HUNDREDS OF MILES;

THESE ROCKY RANGES MADE GOD SMILE.

 

STREAMS FORM FROM MELTING SNOW;

WATERFALLS PLUNGE AND RIVERS FLOW.

AVALANCHES CRASH DURING THE SUMMER,

SNOWSLIDES RUMBLE WHEN WINTER SLUMBERS.

 

THESE ENORMOUS PINNACLES OF ROCKS;

WILL WITHSTAND ANY OF EARTHS' SHOCKS.

GOD MADE MOUNTAINS WITH GREAT FLAIR,

THEIR GRANDEUR IS BEYOND COMPARE!
