One of the most visited State Parks is Yellowstone. It is still an unsullied wilderness where wildlife can roam free – where the unexplained elements of nature abound. The addition of visitors who love these wondrous locations has tended to overcrowd them, but for the most part, they are preserved as they have always been.
When human lives invade the land, it’s bound to take its toll,
Like sin corrupts and sucks out life, investing in our soul,
These precious remnants of our land must not be overrun,
By those who care so little for what God has once begun.
The hand of God is evident, His finger formed the seas,
The mountain ranges still stand tall, the forests full of trees,
The waters raging over rocks, the splendid waterfalls,
The valleys green, the tepid springs, outshine man’s greedy calls.
Will all these places die some day, destroyed by man’s own hand,
Will animals that once flourished soon vanish from the land.
These places are not permanent, in time they too will fall,
But our God’s love never changes, He’s with us through it all.
Though our sin will still run rampant, infecting all our land,
Our God remains in charge of things, the world’s at His command,
But in the meantime may we try to keep our secure
So they will fill the hearts of those who follow and endure.
