It is early evening,

the sky is still blue,

I jump on my old four wheeler,

and drive out,

to that old beaver dam,

to see a beaver our two.

I drive very slow,

trying not to scare,

the wild life, you know.

I like to see and hear,

the birds and white tailed deer.

Oh, what a blessing,

God has given me,

All of nature’s beauty,

He allows me to see.

Praise His name,

for His precious Son,

Who saved us from sin,

and on that old cross,

a great victory was won.
