For the beauty of the earth
Tune: Lucerna Laudoniae
Metre: 7777 and refrain

 

For the beauty of the earth,

For the beauty of the skies,

For the love which, from our birth

Over and around us lies,

     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 flower,

Sun and moon and stars of light.

 

For the joy of ear and eye,

For the heart and mindís 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,

 

For each perfect gift of thine

To our race so freely given,

Graces human and divine,

Flowers of earth and buds of heaven:
