1.  God who touchest earth with beauty,

make my heart anew;

with thy Spirit recreate me

pure, and strong, and true.

2.  Like thy springs and running waters,

make me crystal pure;

like thy rocks of towering grandeur,

make me strong and sure.

3.  Like thy dancing waves in sunlight,

make me glad and free;

like the straightness of the pine trees

let me upright be.

4.  Like the arching of the heavens

lift my thoughts above;

turn my dreams to noble action,

ministries of love.

5.  Like the birds that soar while singing,

give my heart a song;

may the music of thanksgiving

echo clear and strong.

6.  God who touchest earth with beauty,

make my heart anew;

keep me ever by thy Spirit

pure, and strong, and true.
