New Dawn


by Kevin D. Parish


Blessings cascaded down the mountain

Spreading far and wide across the land

Heaven was behind this glorious deed

God, The Holy Spirit, and Son of Man


Beautiful singing was heard all around

As the word bore witness to this wonder

Trumpets could be heard

A pleasing sound

Beneath the rolling thunder


Redemption, salvation and confession


From the lips of the sinners and the


The Trinity has come down to earth

As a new dawn crests on the day
