1. The meadow sings sweet grace’s rhyme,
a chorus carried on the wind,
with branches plucked in nature’s time,
strains rich as any violin,
strains rich as any violin.

2. This score is penned on meadow’s sheet,
with lilting lyrics heav’n composed
in colors writ at midday heat
by daisies and the prairie rose,
by daisies and the prairie rose

3. Sweet air is more than sound or scent
from blooming meadow’s bright display,
but echoes of that third day
when the earth by God was wild arrayed,
the earth by God was wild arrayed.

The meadow sings.
The meadow sings.
Oh, the meadow sings sweet grace’s rhyme.
