The God of Spring.
307

Praise and thanks and cheerful love

Rise from everything below,

To the mighty One above,

Who his wondrous love doth show:

Praise him, each created thing!

God, your Father! God of spring!

Praise him, trees so lately bare;

Praise him, fresh and new-born flowers;

All ye creatures of the air;

All ye soft-descending showers:

Praise, with each awakening thing,

Praise your Maker,—God of spring!

Praise him, man!—thy fitful heart

Let this balmy season move

To employ its noblest part,

Softest mercy, sweetest love,—

Blessing, with each living thing,

God the bounteous,—God of spring!
