Representative Text

1 The whole world is full of the glory of God;
The heav’ns his omnipotent power declare;
The whole world is bright with the sun’s golden light,
There’s beauty and life ev’rywhere.

Chorus:
The whole world is full of the goodness of God,
His care in all nature we see;
Before him we bend, while our voices ascend
In praise to the One in Three.

2 Each blossom that blooms in the meadow so fair,
Each streamlet that glides on its journey along,
Declares the great love of the Father above,
While singing their jubilant song. [Chorus]

3 The rivers that leap to the broad restless sea,
The ocean waves dashing in fury on high,
Forever proclaim their Creator’s great name,
As year after year passes by. [Chorus]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest.
