Beauty of the Mystery

Universe bears witness to its

holy and pure nature.

Author of life and being, wonderful

unexplainable, unexplained energy.

Bearer of light and darkness,

perfect balance that harmonizes.

His presence in every element.

Flowers, symbols of love,

cause joy in wise hearts.


La Beauté du Mystère (The original poem in French)

L’univers témoigne sa nature

sainte et pure.

L’auteur de la vie et de l’être,

énergie merveilleuse

inexplicable, inexpliquée.

Porteuse de lumière et d’obscurité.

l’équilibre parfait qui harmonise.

Sa présence dans chaque élément.

Les fleurs, symboles de l’amour,

provoque la joie dans les coeurs avisés.

The word mystery intrigued me, but the poem captivated me. This is a stunning expression of God's persona.
