There is a river
near no matter how
deep the valley,
no matter how
steep the mountain,
no matter how
parched the
landscape
no matter
how lush
and lavish
the beauty
surrounding
us is. There
is a river!
And that pure,
pristine river
of unequivocal
beauty is
Jesus Christ,
our Lord
and Savior
the living water
whose streams
nothing,
no nothing
or no one
not ever
can quell!
