Bright Covenant

The Master Artist of the world
His azure canvas has unfurled
And splashed true, summer colors there,
Produced a rainbow painting rare -
A fragile arc of wondrous span -
Bright covenant of God with man.
Its awesome splendor stretches wide
To hold a kneeling world inside
 That made the sky and sea and land,
Yet watches over creatures small -
Each tiny sparrow that may fall.
The colors fade from sight below,
Yet in the heart they leave their glow.
