1 O the world to me in its beauty
Is a glorious place most rare;
Where I seek and find the Master’s mind
In nature’s imprint fair;
‘Tis wondrous! ‘Tis wondrous!
‘Tis a work beyond compare!

Earth, sea and sky,
Tell creation’s olden story;
Lived again in souls of men
Who grow in grace.
Sun, moon, and stars,
Speak of God in all His glory,
Showing thus in part to us
His shining face.

2 O the world to me in its beauty
Shows us life in depth and height,
And it tells the soul to seek its goad
In heav’nly realms of light;
‘Tis wondrous! ‘Tis wondrous!
Let us read its message bright. [Refrain]

3 O the world to me in its beauty
Is a vision always new,
And a wealth of love from God above
Reveals its message true;
‘Tis wondrous! ‘Tis wondrous!
How sublime His work to view! [Refrain]
