First Line: Flowers rejoice when night is done

Alternate Author Name(s): Civis Americanus
Subject(s): Flowers; Religion; Theology

FLOWERS rejoice when night is done,
Lift their heads to greet the sun;
Sweetest looks and odours raise,
In a silent hymn of praise.

So my heart would turn away
From the darkness to the day;
Lying open in God's sight
As a flower adores the light.
