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.
