Unison or children's choir, keyboard. Text adapted from the hymn by Pierpoint. Also perfect for Earth Day observances, Creationtide season, or Rogation Days.
For the beauty of the earth, for the beauty of the skies,
For the love from which our birth over and around us lies;
We sing this hymn of graceful praise, we sing this hymn of praise.
For the joy of human love, brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth, and friends above, for all gentle thoughts and mild;
We sing this hymn of grateful praise, we sing this hymn of praise.
We sing this grateful hymn of praise.
