Favor On To You

God's gifts to be known
By the bounty of earth shown
God's voice to be heard
In the hearing of his Word
For life given unto me
For flowing waters of the sea
For the feel of your love divine
For this moment in grace mine
For the budding of life in Spring
For the beauty Summer does bring
For colors in splendor each Fall
For the snows of Winter blessing all
Each moment, day and passing year
In gratitude for life evermore dear
A knowing of an inner spirit of calm
God's love shielding me from harm
Cold be winter's winds now that blow
Upon my face sun's noon warming glow
In joyful reverence this day gifted new
God's love, praise and favor on to you.
