POETRY: Let Everything That Hath Breath Praise The Lord, by Christina Rossetti

Let Everything That Hath Breath Praise The Lord Christina Rossetti

All that we see rejoices in the sunshine,
All that we hear makes merry in the Spring:
God grant us such a mind to be glad after our kind,
And to sing
His praises for everything.

Much that we see must vanish with the sunshine,
Sweet Spring must fail, and fail the choir of Spring:
But Wisdom shall burn on when the lesser lights are gone,
And shall sing
God’s praises evermore for everything.
