The Book of Praise.
The former and the latter rain,
The summer sun and air, The green ear, and the golden grain,
All Thine, are ours by prayer.
Thine too by right, and ours by grace,
The wondrous growth unseen, The hopes that soothe, the fears that brace,
The love that shines serene !
So grant the precious things brought forth
By sun and moon below, That Thee, in Thy new heaven and earth,
We never may forego !
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
The God whom we adore, Be glory, as it was, is now, And shall be evermore !
Amen!
John Keble. 1857.
CCLXX.
Praise, O praise our God and King, Hymns Of adoration sing,
For His mercies still endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
Praise Him that He made the sun Day by day his course to run,
For His mercies still endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure:
And the silver moon by night, Shining with her gentle light,
For His mercies still endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.
