For the beauty of the earth,
For the glory of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies.
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.
For the joy of ear and eye,
For the heart and mind’s delight,
For the mystic harmony
Linking sense to sound and sight.
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.
"For the Beauty of the Earth," by Folliott Pierpoint.

One of my very favorites.
Happy Thanksgiving! I’m grateful for you and your wonderful posts!
I took voice lessons for a couple of years in high school and this was one of the songs we worked on and then we sang it in church. It’s such a beautiful song.
I hope you have wonderful Thanksgiving!
