Representative Text

1 The children’s Sabbath comes again,
With birds and flowers bright,
With earthly fruits and gentle rain,
And floods of sunshine light.

Refrain:
All nature’s voices loud proclaim
God’s goodness great and free,
Let all the children praise his name
With glad, sweet melody.

2 The passing year God’s love has blest,
The hills with music ring,
The pastures now with flocks are drest,
The valleys shout and ring. [Refrain]

3 Sing unto God who made the day,
Whose praise the night prolongs,
Winter and Summer own his sway,
The earth to him belongs. [Refrain]

4 From sea to sea, in temples fair,
Today his children meet,
From north to south we breathe a prayer
And worship at his feet. [Refrain]
