How Beautiful (from Isaiah 52:7)

"The inspirations of the Holy Ghost are quiet, for God speaks in the silent depths of the spirit. "Thomas Merton

How beautiful 
on the mountain
are the feet of him 
who treads
bright paths of
freedom!

From winter's
gray day he
sings into being
new life

peace
and eternal 
light!
*******
Какая красота (из пророка Исайи 52:7)

Какая красота
на горе
являются ноги того,
кто ступает
яркие пути
свобода!

Из зимы в
серый день, когда он
поет в бытие
новая жизнь

мир
и вечное
свет!

  1. Steven,

    A very placid and peaceful piece, which reminds me also of The Lord is My Shepherd, in some ways.
