Praise to God, your praises bring;
Hearts, bow down, and voices sing!
Praises to the glo­ri­ous One,
All His year of wonder done.

Praise Him for His budding green,
April’s resurrection scene;
Praise Him for His shining hours,
Starring all the land with flowers.

Praise Him for His summer rain,
Feeding, day and night, the grain;
Praise Him for His tiny seed,
Holding all His world shall need.

Praise Him for the winter’s rest,
Snow that falls on nature’s breast;
Praise for happy dreams of birth,
Brooding in the quiet earth.

For His year of wonder done,
Praise to the all glo­ri­ous One!
Hearts, bow down and voices, sing,
Praise and love to nature’s king!
