For the Beauty of the Earth

For the Beauty of the Earth

(Verse 1)
For the beauty of the earth;

For the beauty of the skies,

For the love which from our birth

Over and around us lies:

Lord of all, to thee we raise

This our joyful hymn of praise.

 

(Verse 2)
For the beauty of each hour

Of the day and of the night,

Hill and vale and tree and flower,

Sun and moon and stars of light:

Lord of all, to thee we raise

This our joyful hymn of praise.

 

(Verse 3)
For the joy of human love,

Brother, sister, parent, child,

Friends of earth, and friends above,

For all gentle thoughts and mild:

Lord of all, to thee we raise

This our joyful hymn of praise.

 

(Verse 4)
For each perfect gift of thine

To our race so freely given,

Graces human and divine,

Flow'rs of earth and buds of heav'n:

Lord of all, to thee we raise

This our joyful hymn of praise.
