Thou Art The True And Loving God

Thou art the true and loving God;
So speaks whate’er I see,-
The morning star, the evening red,
The grass upon the lea.
The birds both late and early sing-
“O child, He loveth thee,”
On lily, and on roseleaf too,
Thy hand of love I see.

The sun in all his splendid god,
With blessings rich doth shine
On good and evil, day and night,
Thy image-Love Divine.
And bless, O Lord, Thy children dear,
In all the good things they do,
We love to do Thy will because
We know that God is True.
