First Line: Life comes to us from god each day
Last Line: No longer need we walk alone.
Subject(s): God

Life comes to us from God each day,
A thing of beauty, joy and peace;
For love divine knows all our needs
And to each one doth give release.

Oh, that we could but comprehend
The glory of that unseen power;
Which works with such unerring skill,
Its creature's utmost wants to fill.

And that those wants when pure and true,
Were meant to bring us nearer Him;
That in fulfillment we might share
A loving Father's pride and care.

That for his pleasure we were made,
To have a part in His great plan.
He'll give to us in life's sure way,
The help and strength, for which we pray.

And thus the daily round of life
Becomes transformed, a radiant joy;
Our part in life to us he's shown,
No longer need we walk alone.
