HOW beauteous is the earth!

How bright the sky!

How wisely planned by Him

Who reigns on high!

His love is rich and free-

A boundless store!

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,

Forever more!

By day he makes the sun

To pour forth light:

The moon and starry host

To shine by night;

His love, &c.

He waters hill and dale

With dews and showers;

And crowns their varied soils

With fruits and flowers:

His love, &c.

He sent his only Son

To save the world, 

When, from its Eden bowers,

Fallen man was furled:

His love, &c.

His face hath smiled on us,

Above all lands;

Our thousands splendid gifts 

Are from his hands;

His love, &c.
