It Takes Some Clouds
He paints the sky with red and orange,
With purple, pink, and gold.
The wonders of the sunset hour
Can’t properly be told.
It takes the sun – that glowing orb
Which rules each passing day;
It takes some clouds to catch the rays
And make the colors stay.
And when a life is closing here
That’s ruled by God’s dear Son,
The clouds reflect with great effect
What wonders He has done.
Remember when clouds block the sun
And turn life’s day to night,
Without the clouds there’d never be
A sunset glowing bright.
