    Morning glory, starlit sky,
    soaring music, scholarís truth,
    flight of swallows, autumn leaves,
    memoryís treasure, grace of youth:


    Open are the gifts of God,
    gifts of love to mind and sense;
    hidden is loveís agony,
    loveís endeavor, loveís expense.


    Love that gives, gives ever more,
    gives with zeal, with eager hands,
    spares not, keeps not, all outpours,
    ventures all its all expends.


    Drained is love in making full,
    bound in setting others free,
    poor in making many rich,
    weak in giving power to be.


    Therefore he who shows us God
    helpless hangs upon the tree;
    and the nails and crown of thorns
    tell of what Godís love must be.


    Here is God: no monarch he,
    throned in easy state to reign;
    here is God, whose arms of love
    aching, spent, the world sustain.
