GOD bless the little orchard brown
Where the sap stirs these quickening days.
Soon in a white and rosy gown
The trees will give great praise.

God bless the little rivers sweet
That chatter over golden sands;
When I was young they led my feet
Into enchanted lands.

God bless the little fields so green,
The fields that wore a friendly face,
And all the tender hills that lean
O'er the beloved place.

God bless the lark that sings and soars,
The nest that little builders make,
The chestnut and the sycamores,
And many a twisted brake.

The hedges where the sweetbriar twined
With crab-apple and the whitethorn.
God knows I have them in my mind
Many a night and morn!
