140R Praise to God and Thanks We Bring

BENEVENTO (7.7.7.7. D)

1. Praise to God and thanks we bring;
Hearts, bow down, and voi-ces sing!
Prais-es to the Glo-rious One,
all the year of won-der done!
Sing praise for the bud-ding green,
A-pril's res-ur-rec-tion scene;
Sing praise for the shin-ing hours,
star-ring all the land with flowers!

2. Sing praise for the sum-mer rain,
feed-ing day and night the grain;
Sing praise for the ti-ny seed,
hold-ing all the world shall need;
Sing praise for the gar-den root,
mead-ow grass and or-chard fruit;
Praise for hills and val-leys broad,
each the tab-le of our God!

3. Praise God now for snow-y rest,
fall-ing soft on Na-ture's breast;
Praise for hap-py dreams of birth,
brood-ing in the qui-et earth!
For the year of won-der done,
Praise to the All-glo-rious One!
Hearts, bow down, and voi-ces sing,
praise, and love, and thanks we bring.
