by Charles Edward Ives (1874 - 1954)

Across the summer meadows fair
Language: English 
Across the summer meadows fair,
there comes a song of fervent prayer;
It rises radiantly o'er the world,
Exulting, exulting, in the power of God!
Exalting Faith in life above
but humbly yielding, yielding to His love.
