There's learning, pleasant learning

There's learning, pleasant learning

Tune: [There's learning, pleasant learning]
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 There's learning, pleasant learning,
In Nature's ample book;
Its leaves are wide unfolded,
For all who care to look.
And there are gentle lessons,
In summer's blooming walks;
And wisdom in each little flower,
Tho' silently it talks.

2 There's music, joyful music,
In Spring bird's caroled lay,
As through the fields of ether,
Their bright forms soar away.
There's grandeur, solemn grandeur,
In storm clouds' airy sweep,
That move in sullen majesty,
Above the heaving deep.

3 In all the world of beauty,
Spread out before our sight,
Bright lessons wisdom teaches
In characters of light.
O Nature, bounteous Nature,
Thine Anchor dwell above;
Thy teachings are of heavenly truth,
Thy motto--"God is love."
