1.  O God, Thy world is sweet with prayer;

The breath of Christ is in the air;

We rise on Thy free Spirit’s wings,

And every thought within us sings.

2.  Thou art our Morning and our Sun,

Our work is glad, in Thee begun,

Our foot-worn path is fresh with dew,

For Thou createst all things new.

3.  O God, within us and above,

Close to us in the Christ we love,

Through him, our only Guide and way,

May heavenly life be ours today.
