Thanksgiving Hymn- It basically says it all


For The Beauty Of The Earth 


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,
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.


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.
