This work is a setting of a text by Rev. Len Horwood (d.1990), minister of Mt Albert Methodist Church (Auckland) in the 1960's, and was written at the request of Mervyn Rosser - choirmaster of Mt Albert Methodist Church. This particular hymn of praise to God draws its inspiration from aspects of the New Zealand landscape - especially the plants and trees. References are made to the kauri, the rata, and the kowhai, as well as the lakes, mountains and valleys.
