All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.@John 1:3

Charles S. Nutter, in Zion’s Herald, October 21, 1908.

About the time when [this hymn] was written Dr. Nutter had been reading more or less on the immanence of God in the works of Professor Borden P. Browne and other philosophers, and believing the doctrine both scriptural and beautiful he gave his thoughts this poetic expression.

Our God is in the sunshine gay,
And in the darkening shade;
His presence crowns the mountain height,
And fills the silent glade.
His power is in the rising mist,
And in the falling rain;
His life is in the spring-time seed
And in the ripening grain.

The tiny flowers lift their heads
And smile into His face;
All beauty is His holy gift,
All excellence His grace.
Religion is but peace with Him,
His peace in mercy given;
All strife with Him is sin and death,
And harmony is heaven.
