While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.@Genesis 8:22

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!
