1 How beauteous is the earth! how height the sky!
How wisely plann'd by him who reigns on high!
His love is rich and free--a boundless store!
Praise the Lord! praise the Lord for evermore.
2 By day he makes the sun to pour forth light,
The moon and starry host to shine by night. [Chorus]
3 He waters hill and dale with dews and showers,
And crowns their varied soils with fruits and flowers. [Chorus]
4 He sent his only Son to save the world,
When from its Eden bowers fallen man was buried. [Chorus]
5 His face hath smiled on us above all lands;
Our thousand splendid gifts are from his hands. [Chorus]Source: The Little Minstrel: a collection of songs and music, with lessons of instruction, mathematically arranged plan of notation #60
