I Know A Place...

Do you remember this campfire song?

I know a place where no one ever goes
There’s peace and quiet, beauty and repose

It’s hidden in a valley beside a mountain stream
And lying there beside it
I find that I can dream

Only of thing of beauty to the eyes;
Cloud-capped mountains rising to the sky.

Now I know that God made this place for me

One can imagine himself as in a dream
Climbing up a mountain or down a small ravine


The magic of the peace and quiet ever shall stay
To make this place a haven every day


Oh how I wish I never had to leave
All my life such Beauty to receive


Now I know that God had made this place for me.



Guess where this place is? I will keep you in suspense for a while. More photos and stories about the place in my next post...
