The glory of the spring how sweet!
The new-born life how glad!
What joy the happy earth to greet
In new, bright raiment clad!
Divine Redeemer, Thee I bless;
I greet Thy going forth;
I love Thee in the loveliness
Of Thy renewed earth.
New Lambs In the Meadow
But O these wonders of Thy grace,
These nobler works of Thine,
These marvels sweeter far to trace,
The new births more divine:
This new-born glow of faith so strong,
This bloom of love so fair,
This new-born ecstasy of song,
And fragrancy of prayer!
Yellow Arrowleaf and blue Lupine bloom
in the Salt River Mountains
Creator Spirit, work in me
These wonders sweet of Thine;
Divine Redeemer, graciously
Renew this heart of mine.
Still let new life and strength upspring,
Still let new joy be given;
And grant the glad new song to ring
Through the new earth and Heaven.
Springtime Wildflowers bloom in Charon's Garden Wilderness
Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge
