For the beauty of the earth ,
For the glory of the skies ,
For the love which from our birth,
Over and around us lies.

Chorus: Lord of all to Thee we raise, 
This our hymn of grateful 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 human love,
Brother sister parent child,
Friends on earth and friends above,
For all gentle thoughts and mild.

For your church that evermore,
Lifts holy hands above,
Offering up on every shore,
Her pure sacrifice of love.
