This morning, I woke up with a song in my heart. And the song was John Rutter’s ‘Look at the World’. Rutter’s song celebrates the bounty and marvel of creation, and made me think of how much of that abundance we enjoy in the Lake District. One verse in particular leapt out at me because it describes the Lake District so beautifully:
Look at the earth bringing forth fruit and flower,
Look at the sky the sunshine and the rain.
Look at the hills, look at the trees and mountains,
Valley and flowing river, field and plain.
Here are some photos that I think aptly illustrate the lines of lyrics above.
‘Look at the earth bringing forth fruit and flower’:
‘Look at the sky the sunshine and the rain’:
‘Look at the hills, look at the trees and mountains’:
‘Valley and flowing river, field and plain‘:
Come and see all these lovely places for yourselves. Rutter ends his song with the following chorus:
Praise to thee, O Lord for all creation.
Give us thankful hearts that we may see
All the gifts we share, and every blessing,
All things come of thee.
Blenheim Lodge . . . panoramic Lake views, peace and tranquillity, nestled against acres of beautiful fields and woodlands, in the heart of the English Lake District National Park.’
