For the Beauty of the Earth (lyrics)

  • 1. For the beauty of the earth,
    For the beauty of the skies,
    For the love which from our birth
    Over and around us lies,
  • (Chorus)
    Lord of all, to thee we raise
    This our hymn of grateful praise.
  • 2. For the beauty 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,
  • 3. For the joy of human love,
    Brother, sister, parent, child,
    Friends on earth, and friends above,
    For all gentle thoughts and mild,
  • Text: Folliott S. Pierpoint, 1835-1917
    Music: Conrad Kocher, 1786-1872
