Hymn/Song Information

ON THE FOUR SEASONS OF THE YEAR




Praise ye the Lord—O blissful theme,
To sing the honours of his name!
'Tis pleasure, 'tis divine delight,
And praise is lovely in his sight.


He veils the sky with treasured showers,
On earth the plenteous blessing pours;
The mountains smile in lively green,
And fairer blooms the flowery scene.


He speaks ! and swiftly from the skies,
To earth the sovereign mandate flies;
Observant nature hears his word,
And bows obedient to her Lord.


Now thick-descending flakes of snow,
O'er earth a fleecy mantle throw;
Now glitt'ring frost o'er all the plains,
Extends its universal chains.


At his fierce storms of icy hail,
The shiv'ring pow'rs of nature fail;
Before his cold, what life can stand,
Unsheltered by his guardian hand!


He speaks! the ice and snow obey,
And nature's fetters melt away;
Now vernal gales soft rising blow,
And murm'ring waters gently flow.


But nobler works his grace record,
To Israel's sons he sends his word;
Ye favoured tribes, your voices raise,
And bless your God in songs of praise.
