Thank God for pleasant weather! Chant it, merry rills! And clap your hands together, Ye exulting hills! Thank Him, teeming valley! Thank Him, fruitful plain! For the golden sunshine, And the silver rain. Thank God, of good the giver! Shout it, sportive breeze! Respond, oh, tuneful river! To the nodding tees. Thank Him, bud and birdling! As ye grow and sing! Mingle in thanksgiving Every living thing! Thank God, with cheerful spirit, In a glow of love, For what we here inherit, And our hopes above!-- Universal Nature Revels in her birth, When God, in pleasant weather, Smiles upon the earth!
- by George Pope Morris (1802 - 1864) [author's text not yet checked against a primary source]
