35 ~ With Songs and Honors


With songs and honors sounding loud, Address the Lord on high; Over the heavens He spreads His cloud, And waters veil the sky.


He sends His showers of blessing down To cheer the plains below; He makes the grass the mountains crown, And corn in valleys grow.


His steady counsels change the face Of the declining year; He bids the sun cut short his race, And wintry days appear.


He sends His word, and melts the snow; The fields no longer mourn; He calls the warmer gales to blow, And bids the spring return.


The changing wind, the flying cloud, Obey His mighty word: With songs and honors sounding loud Praise ye the sovereign Lord!
