1. O Lord, who gave the dawn its glow,
and charm to close of day,
you made all song and fragrance flow,
gave spring its magic sway:
deliver us, lest none should praise
for glories that all earth displays.

2. O Lord, who caused the streams to sing,
gave joy to forest trees,
you gave a song to lark on wing,
and chords to gentlest breeze:
deliver us, lest we should see
a day without a song set free.

3. O Lord, who heard the lonely trend
on that strange path of old,
you saw the Son of Man once shed
his blood from love untold:
deliver us, lest one age dawn
without a cross or crown of thorn.
