God, give us eyes to see the beauty of the 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.
And may this Easter grandeur, that spring lavishly imparts, awaken faded flowers, of faith lying dormant in our hearts.
And give us ears to hear, dear God, the springtime song of birds, with messages more meaningful than man’s often empty words.
Telling harried human beings who are lost in dark despair, ‘Be like us and do not worry for God has you in His care.’
