As lightly and sweetly we tread
The rose-scattered pathway of youth,
We'll triumph that o'er us is spread
The ban-ner of mer-cy and truth;
We'll our forth our praises that he
Who liveth and reigneth above,
For-ever our Guardian will be,
That God our Creator is love.
We know that his kindness and care
All parts of creation embrace-
That we shall especially share
The gifts of his infinite grace.
To him our thanksgivings ascend:
His blessings unlimited prove
That he is our father and friend-
That God our Preserver is love.
His love he revealed in his Son,
Whose mercy no bounds ever knew:
We'll praise him for all he has done,
And all he has promised to do;
In feeling, in deed, and in word,
Be governed by grace from above;
And always rejoice in the Lord,
For God our Redeemer is love.
