For The Beauty of the Earth

By

Folliet S. Pierpont, 1864

For the beauty of the earth
For the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies,

Christ our God, to Thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise.

Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale, and tree and flow'r,
Sun and moon, and stars of light,

Christ our God, to Thee we praise
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,

Christ our God, to Thee we praise
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 tho'ts and mild,

Christ our God, to Thee we praise
This our hymn of grateful praise.

For Thy church that ever more
Lifteth holy hands above,
Off'ring up on every shore
Its pure sacrifce of love,

Christ our God, to Thee we praise
This our hymn of grateful praise.

For Thyself, blest Gift Divine!
To our race so freely giv'n;
For that great, great love of Thine,
Peace on earth and joy in heav'n

Christ our God, to Thee we praise
This our hymn of grateful praise.
