Works of the Lord are revealed,
Little guess what joy can be got
From a cowslip out of the field.
In thy presence is fullness of joy;
In thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
My Father, I thank thee that nature reveals thy power as she unfolds her beauty and wonder to the searching eye. Guide me that I may see in the little flower the smile of welcome, the look of kindness, and the beauty of hope which it renders to all; and may I learn from it thy protection in the smallest things of life. Amen.
