FOR THE BEAUTY OF THE EARTH - by Folliott S. Pierpont, 1864
                               Public Domain


       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.

       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.

       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.

       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.

       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.
