Lord of the springtime…

Lord of the springtime
Father of the flower, field and fruit,
smile on us in these earnest days,
when the work is heavy and the toil wearisome;
lift up our hearts, O God, to the things worthwhile —
sunshine and night, the dripping rain, the song of birds,
books and music, and the voices of friends.
Lift up our hearts to these this evening
and grant us thy peace.

–From Earth Prayers from Around the World by W.E.B DuBois, p. 293.
