Our God is the Creator of all things
and into our lives fragrant beauty brings.
For as each flower opened and unfurled
it told of His wondrous love for our world.
For I heard each flower speaking to me
and there the Glory of God I could see.
They had all been set out with loving care
by the person who had arranged them there.
I saw the beauty of each lovely bloom
and their colour and fragrance filled the room.
So I praised God for His great creation
for His wonderful love and salvation.
Praised Him for the joy He gives you and me,
praised Him for eyes that were able to see,
praised Him for the splendour of each flower,
praised Him for His love and mighty power.
