For the Beauty of the Earth

Folliott S. Pierpoint (1835-1917)

For the beauty of the earth,

For the glory of the skies;

For the love which from our birth,

Over and around us lies;

O Source of all, to Thee we raise

This, our hymn of grateful praise:

Lauda! Laudate Dominum!

For the wonder 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;

O Source of all, to Thee we raise

This, our hymn of grateful praise:

Lauda! Laudate Dominum!

For the joy of ear and eye,

For the heart and mind's delight;

For the mystic harmony,

Linking sense to sound and sight;

O Source of all, to Thee we raise

This, our hymn of joyful praise:


Lauda! Laudate Dominum!
Lauda! Laudate Dominum!
Lauda! Lauda! Lauda!
