Representative Text

1 God is good—the heav’ns declare it—
Far off stars and beaming sun,
Witnessing to hearts that listen
In a language all their own.

2 God is good—the earth proclaims it
In a chorus loud and strong,
Birds and flowers, fields and woodlands
Joining in the tribute song.

3 God is good, we softly whisper
When the deep’ning shades enfold,
Even ‘mid life’s pain and sorrow
We His goodness may behold.

4 God is good! then let us trust Him
Like the little children do,
He hath given to His angels
Charge concerning me and you.

Thomas O. Chisholm was born in Franklin, Kentucky in 1866. His boyhood was spent ona farm and in teaching district schools. He spent five years as editor of the local paper at Franklin. He was converted to Christianity at the age of 26 and soon after was business manager and office editor of the "Pentecostal Hearld" or Louisville, Ky. In 1903 he entered the ministry of the M. E. Church South. His aim in writing was to incorporate as much as Scripture as possible and to avoid flippant or sentimental themes.
