1 Hark the gladness ringing
‘Neath the summer sky!
All things praise are bringing
Unto God on high!
Joyous songs are swelling
In bright field and wood,
Nature’s choirs are telling
“God is great and good.”

Refrain:
Hark the gladness ringing,
‘Neath the summer sky!
All things praise are bringing
Unto God on high.

2 Flow’rs awake from dreaming
In the woodland ways,
Telling in sweet silence
Their Creator’s praise.
Skies of morning splendor,
Legions of the night,
All unite to ender
Tribute to His might. [Refrain]

3 Nature’s chorus raises
Anthems sweet and grand,
Join, O join the praises
Of the summer land!
All the earth rejoices,
Telling God’s great care,
Join the happy voices,
Of the earth and air. [Refrain]
