Representative Text

1 The flowers and birds are Thine, O God,
All formed by Thy hand divine;
The flocks and the herds are Thine, O God,
And so is this heart of mine.

Chorus:
The whole lovely earth is Thine,
And so is this heart of mine;
And I am of worth, ore than all the earth,
For I am a child of Thine.

2 The valleys and hills are Thine, O God,
The sunbeams that gleam and shine;
The rivers and rills are Thine, O God,
And so is this heart of mine. [Chorus]

3 The bushes and trees are Thine, O God,
The cedar, the palm, the pine;
The lakes and the seas are Thine, O God,
And so is this heart of mine. [Chorus]
