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,

[Refrain:]
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 flower,
sun and moon and stars of light, (Refrain)

3 For the joy of ear and eye,
for the heart and mind's delight,
for the mystic harmony
linking sense to sound and sight, (Refrain)

4 For the joy of human love,
brother, sister, parent, child,
friends on earth and friends above,
for all gentle thoughts and mild, (Refrain)

5 For the Church that evermore
lifteth holy hands above,
offering up on every shore
her pure sacrifice of love, (Refrain)

6 For thyself, best gift divine,
to the world so freely given;
for that great, great love of thine,
peace on earth and joy in heaven. (Refrain)
