Reader: The cold wind In the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden -
Cong.: He made them every one !
Reader: The tall trees in the greenwood;
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water -
Cong.: We gather every day.
Reader: He gave us eyes to see them;
And lips that we might tell,
How great is God Almighty
Cong.: Who hath done all things well.
Reader: For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird and hum of bee,
Cong.: Father in heaven, we thank Thee!
Reader: For blue of stream and blue of sky,
For pleasant shade of branches high,
For fragrant air and cooling breeze,
For beauty of the blooming trees,
Cong.: Father In heaven, we thank Thee!
