LET ALL THE EARTH KEEP SILENCE, by            
First Line: How lovely is the silence of green, growing things
Last Line: All praise him in their beauty—keeping still.
Subject(s): Nature; Silence; Worship


How lovely is the silence of green, growing things—
Orchard blossoms, apple, plum, and pear,
Branches laden down by fruit they bear,
Fields of everlasting, creeping vine,
Mountain-forest, hemlock, balsam, pine,
Gentian, asters, sweet-fern on the hill,
All praise Him in their beauty—keeping still.
