1 Praise to God, your praises bring;
hearts bow down and voices sing
Praises to the glorious One,
all God's year of wonder done.
2 Praise God for the budding green,
April’s resurrection scene;
Praise God for the shining hours,
starring all the land with flowers.
3 Praise God for the summer rain,
feeding, day and night, the grain;
Praise God for the tiny seed,
holding all the world shall need.
4 Praise God for the garden root,
meadow grass, and orchard fruit:
Praise for hills and valleys broad,
each the table of our God.
5 Praise God for the winter’s rest,
snow that falls on nature’s breast;
Praise for happy dreams of birth,
brooding in the quiet earth.
6 For God's year of wonder done,
praise to the all-glorious One!
Hearts, bow down and voices raise
songs of thanks for all God's days.
