For The Beauty Of The Earth


For The Beauty Of The Earth


1. For the beauty of the earth, 
For the glory of the skies; 
For the love which from our birth, 
Over and around us lies; 
Lord of all, to Thee we raise 
This, our hymn of grateful praise. 

2. For the wonder of each hour, 
Of the day and of the night; 
Hill and vale and tree and flow'r, 
Sun and moon, and stars of light; 
Lord of all, to Thee we raise 
This, our hymn of grateful praise. 

3. For the joy of ear and eye, 
For the heart and mind's delight; 
For the mystic harmony, 
Linking sense to sound and sight; 
Lord of all, to Thee we raise 
This, our hymn of grateful praise. 

4. For the joy of human love, 
Brother, sister, parent, child; 
Friends on Earth and friends above, 
For all gentle thoughts and mild; 
Lord of all, to Thee we raise 
This, our hymn of grateful praise. 
5. For Thy church that evermore, 
Lifteth holy hands above; 
Off'ring up on ev'ry shore, 
Her pure sacrifice of love; 
Lord of all, to Thee we raise 
This, our hymn of grateful praise. 
Amen.
