How beautiful are you God,
Who has made beautiful the feet of those bearing
the good news of Jesus
good news upon the mountains
good news in the canyons
good news in the streets
good news and peace
That salvation might strike upon ears like thunder
and Christmas bells
and sidewalk singers and preachers
For, it is by hearing that faith comes.
and how beautiful, when it does
when it falls fresh like hair on a girl's shoulders
and like the rainbow jetting earthward into valleys
Manoa Valley, Temple Valley, Palolo Valley
In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
