I’ve traveled far and traveled wide
Through ancient town and countryside
Atop the hill, o’er valley stream
On mountainside or cottage scene !
This treasure wherewith we’ve been graced
Grand forests with their limbs enlaced
The sturdy vines that creep and hide
Encouraging the moss beside.
These are the sights that nature brings
Into our lives when beauty sings
Such a great wonder God has sown
Each minute seed that time has grown !
