Representative Text

1. There is music in the streamlet
Flowing ’neath the azure sky;
Every bird proclaims a carol
To the God who rules on high;
Every flower imparts a message
To the blessèd Lord of all
Who today is kindly watching
Over nations great and small.

As we march beneath His banner,
Pointing to the realms above,
Let us ask Him to go with us,
And to fill our hearts with love.

2. There is beauty in the sunshine
That provides the world with light;
Every leaf renews its brightness,
When refreshed with dew of night;
Every cloud renews its grandeur,
E’en when stormy billows roll;
But the beauty Jesus loveth
Is the beauty of the soul. [Refrain]

3. Praises and eternal glory
To our heav’nly king belong;
Of His goodness and His mercy
Let us tell in joyful song;
We may drop a word of kindness
That may quell the coming foe;
Let us labor for the Master
While we tarry here below. [Refrain]
