1 The flow’ry Spring at Thy command,
Perfumes the air, adorns the land;
The summer rays with vigor shine,
To raise the corn, to cheer the vine.
2 Thy hand, in autumn, richly pours
Thro’ all our coast, redundant stores;
And winters, softened by Thy care,
No more the face of horror wear.
3 The changing seasons, months, and days,
Demand successive songs of praise;
And be the grateful homage paid,
With morning light and evening shade.
4 Here in Thy house let incense rise,
And circling Sabbaths bless our eyes,
Till to those lofty heights we soar,
Where days and years revolve no more.
