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,

...For the joy of ear and eye, for the heart and mind's delight,


Lord of all, to thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise!

Happy thanksgiving, today and every day.
