1 Praise to thy name, eternal God!
For all the grace thou shed'st abroad,
For all thy influence from above,
To warm our souls with sacred love.
2 Bless'd be thy hand, which from the skies
Brought down this plant of paradise,
And gave its heav'nly beauties birth
To deck this wilderness of earth.
3 Unchanging Sun! thy beams display,
To drive the frost and storms away;
Make all thy potent virtues known,
To cheer a plant so much thy own.
4 May thy blest spirit deign to blow
Fresh gales of heav'n on shrubs below;
So shall they grow, and breathe abroad
A fragrance grateful to our God.
