1 Now night submits to the encroaching day,
2 And groves, and fields, put on their spring array;
3 Now various flowers of various hues display'd,
4 Adorn the green, or deck the lonely shade.
5 These show the pow'r of the Almighty's hand;
6 They spring, they blow, they sade at his command:
7 United Nature does his word fulfil,
8 'Tis Man alone rejects his Maker's will.
