For the Beauty of the Earth

Words: Folliot Sandford Pierpoint,
Music: Conrad Kocher.

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 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.


For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth and friends above,
For all gentle thoughts and mild.


For each perfect gift of Thine
to our race so freely giv'n
Graces human and divine,
Flowr's of earth and buds of heav'n;


For Thy church, that evermore
Lifteth holy hands above,
Offering upon every shore
Her pure sacrifice of love.
