God enlightened His children as they grew;
~~He put forth a season of wildflowers in a promised land.
His early lovers called on Him in cycles of serpentine struggles;
~~the brave and frightened psalmist of Zion also called on Him.
In time, the Lord made youth from the lining of the child;
~~He raised His warmed ones to outgrow their ancient unawakened ways.
Soft rays dispersed cloudy young minds,
~~and mild rains filtered the dust of childhood.
Youth grew into a great century of light, filled and satisfied;
~~in this day, Earth is such a youth, robust, rebellious, in sweet ripeness and pride.
With dread and judgment, the Father Himself will appear to still this natural struggle;
~~the Lord will show their wandering the way.
Surely youth in all their wild lands will look toward light and glory;
~~they will walk toward light and glory along this rocky floor of the sky.
