God the giver

Representative Text

1 O world of light and glory!
O sky of cloud and blue!
Thy daily song and story
Is ever fresh and new.
Then let us join the chorus,
With voices glad and clear,
His love is watching o'er us,
Who sees afar and near.

2 The trees and grass and flowers,
The birds that sing his praise,
The gentle summer showers,
The shining autumn days,
From God's own hand are given
In loving bounty free;
He made the earth and heaven,
He dwells with you and me.

3 He gave the precious treasure
Of home and lov'd ones dear,
The blessing and the pleasure
That crown each happy year.
And, oh, beyond our telling,
His only Son he gave,
All other gifts excelling,
A sinful world to save.
