A Prayer in Spring~~Robert Frost

A Prayer in Spring

OH, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;

And give us not to think so far away

As the uncertain harvest; keep us here

All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,

Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;

And make us happy in the happy bees,

The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

And make us happy in the darting bird

That suddenly above the bees is heard,

The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,

And off a blossom in mid air stands still.

For this is love and nothing else is love,

The which it is reserved for God above

To sanctify to what far ends He will,

But which it only needs that we fulfil.

Beauty of Spring By Helen Rice

April 12, 2014

God, give us eyes to see the beauty of spring 
And to behold Your majesty 
in every living thing. 
And may we see in lacy leaves 
and every budding flower, 
The hand that rules the universe 
with gentleness and power.

Little Springtime Prayer

By Helen Rice

God, grant this little springtime prayer
And make our hearts, grown cold with care,
Once more aware of the waking earth
Now pregnant with life and bursting with birth…
For how can man feel any fear or doubt 
When on every side all around and about
The March winds blow across a man’s face
And whisper of God’s power and grace?
Oh, give us faith to believe again
That peace on earth, good will to men
Will follow this winter of man’s mind
And awaken his heart and make him kind…
And just as great nature sends spring
To give new birth to each sleeping thing,
God, grant rebirth to man’s slumbering soul
And help him forsake his selfish goal.

Spring time

For flowers that bloom about our feet,
For tender grass so fresh and sweet,
For song of bird and hum of bee,
For all things fair we hear and see,
Father in heaven,
Father in heaven, we thank thee.

For blue of stream and blue of sky,
For pleasant shade of branches high,
For fragrant air and cooling breeze,
For beauty of the blooming trees,
Father in heaven,
Father in heaven, we thank thee.
