1Lilies, roses, daisies,
Flowers of every hue,
Take each one as coming
Straight from God to you;
Telling wondrous secrets
Of His power and love,
Wearing still the brightness
Of the home above.
Oh! These flowers of summer,
Angel-like are they;
Listen to the message
Which they bring today.
2Just as earth’s creation
Showed the might of God
So does every floweret
Springing from the sod.
He Who guides the star-worlds
Curbs the ocean’s power,
With the same hand painteth
Every leaf and flower.
3Touch these sweet flowers gently,
So divinely dressed,
They are, in earth’s language,
Thoughts of God expressed.
Thoughts of heavenly glory
Sweetness, purity–
Must not He Who framed them
Wholly lovely be?
4Praise Him then with singing,
Tell His love abroad;
Be the whole earth ringing
With the name of God.
Lakes and hills be telling
Sunset skies, and flowers,
Something of the beauty
Of this God of ours. Amen.
John1:3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
