Representative Text

1 In the beauty of the earth and the glowing skies,
In the love which from our birth around about us lies,
In the songs of birds that fly thro’ the balmy air,
All are telling, clearly telling,
God is ev’rywhere.

Refrain:
Rays of sunshine, beaming with light,
Stars of ev’ning, twinkling so bright,
All are telling, clearing telling,
God, our God is ev’rywhere.

2 In the perfect gifts of thine to us freely giv’n,
Graces human and divine the flow’rs of earth and heav’n,
In the tint that paints the rose and the lily fair,
All are telling, clearly telling,
God is ev’rywhere. [Refrain]

3 In the grass which robes the hills in a gown of green,
In the humblest flow’r that grows thy wondrous pow’r is seen,
Not a spot in all the earth, ocean deep, or air,
But is telling, clearly telling,
God is ev’rywhere. [Refrain]

He published the following song books: “New songs of the gospel” (1900), “The service of praise” (1900), “The voice of praise” (1904), “The tribute of song” (1904), “New songs of the gospel… Go to person page >
