Lyrics to Song of the Wanderer

The barren land around me lies, my flame is burning low;
Cold and pale the winter skies, and I am far from home.
With my light that burns so dim, am I visible to Him?
Does He hear the fragile song of creatures here below?


He wakes the lark and bids her fly to greet the coming spring,
Wakes our hearts and bids us rise then gives our spirits wing.
He speaks and winter melts away, hears us when we come to pray,
Turns our nighttime into day our Light, our Life, our King.


Glorious joy of summer sun, the gentle healing rain,
Banishing our tears and sighs, with beauty for our pain.
Earth and sky, lay glory by—Christ, the Lord, is drawing night!
All creation, bow to Him, from whom all blessings flow!


Blows the wind, and soon will come the autumn of the year
With its golden light of love still shining ever clear.
From the rising of the sun, to the place where day is done,
Peace on earth has now begun to cast away our fear.


Praise God from whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
