Words: Maltbie Davenport Babcock, 1901. Like Babcock's famous hymn This Is My Father's World, these lyrics reflect his great love of the outdoors.

Music: "St. Venantius," Rouen church melody


When the great sun sinks to his rest,
His golden glories thrilling me,
And voiceless longings stir my breast,
Then teach me, Lord, to worship Thee.

And when the stars-the daylight fled-
In serried, shining ranks I see,
Filling the splendid vault o'erhead,
Then teach me, Lord, to worship Thee.

Or if in solemn forest shades
The calm of nature steals o'er me,
And silence all my soul pervades,
Then teach me, Lord, to worship Thee.

Not in the sacred shrines alone,
Which chime their summons unto me,
Would I look upward to Thy throne,
But everywhere would worship Thee.
