1 Great Giver of all good,
To Thee our thanks we yield
For all the beauties of the wood,
Of hill, and dale, and field.

2 Ten thousand various flowers
To Thee sweet offerings bear,
And joyous birds in woodland bowers
Sing forth Thy tender care.

3 The fields on every side,
The trees on every hill,
The glorious sun, the rolling tide,
Proclaim Thy wonders still.

4 But trees, and fields, and skies
Still praise a God unknown;
For gratitude and love can rise
From living hearts alone.

5 These living hearts of ours
Thy holy Name would bless:
The blossoms of the thousand flowers
Would please the Saviour less.

6 While earth itself decays,
Our souls can never die;
O tune them all to sing Thy praise
In better songs on high.

Amen.
