Prayer for the week from Live Lent

 

When through the woods and forest glades I wander

And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;

When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,

And hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze:

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee,

How great Thou art! How great Thou art!

From “O Lord my God!”,

by Stuart K. Hine (1899-1989)
