Among The Orchids



                                                         Among the many orchids
                                                         there's beauty so divine
                                                         crystal, clear waters flow
                                                         the sun never fails to shine

                                                         Lillies dance around them
                                                         an enchanted and glorious array
                                                         the roses climb even higher
                                                         and birds sing as they pray



                                                        The stars are nearer there
                                                        the winds of heaven blow
                                                        orchids stand among it all
                                                        God did arrange it so

                                                        In beautiful, bright tranquility
                                                        a haven from distress and care
                                                        the shining path is heaven
                                                        among the orchids there

                                                        The garden gate is open
                                                        in the midst of silvery dew
                                                        loved ones are the orchids
                                                        waiting for me and you
