"For the beauty of the earth"
di F. S. Pierpoint (1835-1917)

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.
For the beauty of each hour,
of the day and of the night,
vale and tree and flower,
sun and moon and stars of light
Lord of all ...

For the joy of love,
brother, sister, parent, child,
friends on earth, and friends above,
for all gentle thoughts and mild.
Lord of all ...

For each perfect gift of thine
to our race do freely given,
graces human and divine,
flow'rs of earth and buds of heav'n.
Lord of all ...
