There is something sweet in nature 

In the brook, the hill, and dale 

 Wherein we may read a lesson

As we wander through the vale.

Does the lesson nature teaches 

Leave its impress on the soul,

Brightening for life its pathway, 

Guiding to the final goal?

We are daily passing onward, 

Soon our journey will be o'er;

Then a home where all is joyous 

May be ours forevermore.

We are waiting for the harvest;

And the welcome hour will come, 

When the pure shall reach the harbor, 

And our Lord shall say, Well done.
