A Haven for Vee

I Have Seen A Summer Day

I have seen a summer day that slowly opens like a rose...

I have seen a summer day
That slowly opens like a rose
Along a quiet road that wanders by
And I have smiled and wonder'd
Where it goes


I have stumbled through the night
Alone as anyone can be
Then found a silent canyon full of stars
And in my heart I heard them telling me

I was home

The gentle winds
The rains that fall
The tallest trees

I'm part of it all

I've seen the silver mountain tops
And golden prairies on my way
Now everywhere I go across the land
I stand so proudly in the sun and say
I am home


I've dreamed of Eden all my life
I find it more and more each day
Now everywhere I go across the land
I stand so proudly in the sun and say
I am home


~An American Hymn
by Molly Ann Leiken and Lee Holdridge

May your summer day be blessed!
