My Strength--By Douglas L. Ace--United States

My Strength

There is a calling
to the inner depths of me
when I look at the
majesty of Your mountains.
Quiet and serene, they still me
as I am reminded once again, of You.
You who spoke
these mountains into existence
and are my Strength.
          AND
The Strength of those who
safely trust in, lean into
and rely upon and
confide in
YOU.
