Representative Text

1 The children’s Sabbath comes again,
With birds and flowers bright,
With earthly fruits and gentle rain,
And floods of sunshine light.

All nature’s voices loud proclaim
God’s goodness great and free,
Let all the children praise his name
With glad, sweet melody.

2 The passing year God’s love has blest,
The hills with music ring,
The pastures now with flocks are drest,
The valleys shout and ring. [Refrain]

3 Sing unto God who made the day,
Whose praise the night prolongs,
Winter and Summer own his sway,
The earth to him belongs. [Refrain]

4 From sea to sea, in temples fair,
Today his children meet,
From north to south we breathe a prayer
And worship at his feet. [Refrain]
