From everything our Saviour saw 

Lessons of wisdom he would draw: 

The clouds, the colors in the sky", 

The gentle breeze that whispers by, 

The fields all white with waving corn, 

The lilies that the vale adorn, 

The reed that trembles in the wind, 

The tree where none its fruit can find, 

The little birds that fly in air, 

The sheep that need the shepherd's care, 

The pearls that deep in ocean lie, 

The gold that charms the miser's eye 

All from his lips some truth proclaim, 

Or learn to tell their Maker's name.
