TEXT

For the beauty of the earth, for the beauty of the skies,
for the love which from our birth over and around us lies,
For the joy of human love, brother, sister, parent, child,
friends on earth, and friends above, for all gentle thoughts and mild,

Christ our God, to thee we raise this our sacrifice of praise.

For the beauty of the hour of the day and of the night,
hill and vale, and tree and flow'r,
sun and moon, and stars of light,

Christ our God, to thee we raise this our sacrifice of praise.

For the joy of ear and eye, for the heart and brain's delight,
for the mystic harmony linking sense to sound and sight,
For the Christ our God, to thee we raise this our sacrifice of praise.
