#54: For the Beauty of the Earth

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

For the beauty of the earth,

For the glory of the skies,

For the love with from our birth

Over and around us lies:

CHORUS

Christ our God, 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.

CHORUS

3

For the joy of human love,

Brother, sister, parent, child,

Friends on earth and friends above,

For all gentle thoughts and mild:

CHORUS

4

For Thy Church that evermore

Lifteth holy hands above,

Off’ring up on ev’ry shore

Her pure sacrifice of love:

CHORUS
