2024. Great God, the World is Full of Thee

1. Great God, the world is full of Thee,
Thy kindness, and Thy power;
The bright blue sky, and rolling sea,
Green tree, and summer flower.

2. And every day, and everywhere,
Thou watchest everything;
The tender lamb enjoys Thy care;
The little birds that sing.

3. And very, very kind indeed
Thou art, O God, to me;
Supplying all my daily need;
And helping patiently.

4. Teach my young heart to yield its love
Through Jesus Christ, Thy Son;
That I may dwell with Thee above,
When life below is done.
