All of the words have religion to connect them.  Wordsworth often used religion as a bridge to nature and vice versa.  He believed that only God could have created the purity, gracious beauty and reverence that nature commands from humans.  He also believed the only God could create nature, which so inspires artists to attempt to recreate it and/or learn life lessons from it. 

Wordsworth had the utmost respect for nature and its creator.  The two were inextricably linked. Wordsworth's diction commands that the reader respect the awe and inspiration of nature and its beauty.
