Thanksgiving, 2012

 

For The Beauty Of The Earth

072-1

For the beauty of the earth,
For the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.
For the beauty of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
038

Hill and vale, and tree and flower,
Sun and moon and stars of light,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.
For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth, and friends above,
Pleasures pure and undefiled,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.
045

For each perfect gift of thine,
To our race so freely given,
Graces human and divine,
Flowers of earth and buds of heaven,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.
For thy Church which evermore
Lifteth holy hands above,
Offering up on every shore
Her pure sacrifice of love,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a kind comment :) Canada is such a wonderful place - a place I miss dearly! This song 'For The Beauty of the Earth' has been on my heart and mind a lot lately. In fact, I wrote a post last week about it :) Anyway, I am now your follower and I look forward to your future posts. Happy Thanksgiving!

Warmly,
Stephanie
