All Things Beautiful and Fair

Representative Text

1 All things beautiful and fair,
Earth and sky and balmy air;
Sunny field and shady grove,
Gently whisper, "God is love!"

2 Every tree and flower we pass,
Every tuft of waving grass,
Every leaf and opening bud,
Seem to tell us "God is good".

3 Little streams that glide along,
Verdant, mossy banks among,
Shadowing forth the clouds above,
Softly murmur, "God is love."

4 He who dwelleth high in heaven,
Unto us has all things given;
Let us, as through life we move,
Ever feel that "God is love".

Amen.
