Text (1852) by Thomas Hornblower Gill (1819-1906)


I walk amidst thy beauty forth,

My joy thy praise declares;

I bless thee with thy blooming earth,

I drink thy vernal airs.


Those old eternal hills of thine,

What mighty cheer they breathe!

What fulness of delight divine

Thy solemn stars bequeath!


Each wonder of thy hand still makes

My gladness fresh and strong;

The glory of my God still wakes

The glory of my song.


When cheer and strength my heart doth lack,

Thy gladness makes me whole;

Amidst thy summer I win back

The summer of my soul.
