For the beauty of the earth

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 joyful hymn of grateful praise.
Alternative refrain:
Christ, our God, to Thee we raise
This, our sacrifice of praise.
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
Refrain
For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child.
Friends on earth and friends above
For all gentle thoughts and mild.
Refrain
For each perfect gift of Thine
To our race so freely given.
Graces human and divine
Flow’rs of earth and buds of heav’n.
Refrain
Alternative last verse:
For thy church that evermore
Lifteth holy hands above,
Offering up on every shore
Her pure sacrifice of love.
Refrain
