1Once more an end of gloom!
From out their wintry tomb
In rich profusion rise
Beneath the vernal skies
Sweet flowers– the harbingers of Spring,
The beauteous gifts of God we bring.
2In speechless notes they raise
Their great Creator’s praise;
While ever, as of old,
In harmonies untold
The Universe in under-tone
Doth its Almighty Ruler own.
3Ye blooms of varied hue!
He frames and fashions you,
With new-born loveliness
He decks your yearly dress:
Your perfume sweet, your tints so bright,
Do yield Him laud, and man delight.
4Ye, types and tokens are
Of that bright world afar,
Where flowerets never fade
As here, in dell and glade:
Where all is joy, where gloom is o’er,
Where Beauty reigns forevermore. Amen.
Psalm19:1,31 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. 3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
