I see you there in glory shining bright,
Following the sun and its path of light.
Standing tall above all others in the field,
You grow, conquer, and do not yield.

The little birds take great delight
 In playing round you, from day to night.
With your petals of yellow and leaves of green,
 How very easily you are seen.

But, there is more to you than first sight,
More than beauty and grandeur to delight.
Every beautiful aspect that appears,
Gives praise to the Father dear.

He made you a part of creation
And you praise him in glorious celebration!
The beauty that within you is expresssed,
Gives testimony to His greatness.

Sunflower, how I long to be like you!
Glorifying God in all I do.
Following the Son and His path of light,
 To worship Him in His glory shining bright.

I can learn from you my friend,
With every breath, praise to God I might send.
With all of His creation telling the story,
Might I, with you, proclaim His glory.

It's what sunflowers do".  Helen Keller
