The following was inspired by the beautiful mountainous surrounding Dutch Creek Valley.

The Picture

As I look out of my window, what a beautiful sight,
Just as dawn is breaking and it's beginning to get light,
There's a picture so lovely, so perfect that I can see.
None other has ever been painted so pretty; it was made for you and me.

As you look upon the mountain,
Up and down the valley so green,
Across the pastures, the rivers and ravines,
It's the most beautiful sight I have ever seen.

Everything is bursting alive and all aglow,
So many different flowers and trees,
Soon you will be hearing humming
From the birds and from the bees.

All the world's a beautiful place,
Just the people in it are a disgrace.
Why can one doubt that it is according to God's Plan.
That everything will be more wonderful, what He has in store in the other land.
