The beautiful world

Representative Text

1. There's beauty in the sunshine,
There's beauty in the showers,
There's beauty in the wildwood,
There's beauty in the flowers;
The valley and the mountain,
The ocean and the plain,
In beauty robed entrance the heart,
And every sense enchain.

2. But there's a world of promise
More beautiful and pure,
Where all that's bright and lovely
Forever shall endure;
No angry storms assail it,
No blast, no sickly blight,
No chilling winds, no burning heat,
No dark and dreary night.

3. One season bland and vernal
Shall bless that hallowed ground,
And changeless and eternal
Shall beauty smile around;
From hunger, thirst, and weakness,
The ransomed souls are free,
They drink the stream and pluck the fruit
Of immortality.
