Praise to God, your prais­es bring;
Hearts, bow down, and voic­es sing!
Praises to the glo­ri­ous One,
All His year of won­der done.

Praise Him for His bud­ding green,
April’s re­sur­rect­ion scene;
Praise Him for His shin­ing hours,
Starring all the land with flow­ers.

Praise Him for His sum­mer rain,
Feeding, day and night, the grain;
Praise Him for His ti­ny seed,
Holding all His world shall need.

Praise Him for the win­ter’s rest,
Snow that falls on na­ture’s breast;
Praise for hap­py dreams of birth,
Brooding in the qui­et earth.

For His year of won­der done,
Praise to the all glo­ri­ous One!
Hearts, bow down and voic­es, sing,
Praise and love to na­ture’s king!
