1. 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.
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: Lord of all to Thee we raise, This our hymn of grateful praise.
3. For the joy of human love, Brother, sister, parent, child, Friends on earth, and friends above, For all gentle thoughts and mild: Lord of all to Thee we raise, This our hymn of grateful praise.
4. For Thyself, best Gift Divine! To our race so freely given: For that great, great love of Thine, Peace on earth, and joy in heav’n: Lord of all to Thee we raise, This our hymn of grateful praise.
