Full Text

1 God, who touches earth with beauty,
Make me lovely, too,
With Thy Spirit recreate me,
Make my heart anew.

2 Like Thy springs and running waters,
Make me crystal pure,
Like Thy rocks of towering grandeur
Make me strong and sure.

3 Like the dancing waves in sunlight,
Make me glad and free,
Like the straightness of the pine trees,
Let me upright be.

4 Like the arching of the heavens,
Lift my thoughts above,
Turn my dreams to noble action,
Ministries of love.

5 God, who touches earth with beauty,
Make me lovely, too,
Keep me ever, by Thy Spirit,
Pure and strong and true.

Amen.
