lyrics

For the Beauty of the Earth

Folliot S. Pierpoint

For the beauty of the earth

For the glory of the skies,

For the love which from our birth

Over and around us lies.

Lord of all, to Thee we raise,

This our hymn of grateful praise.
Lord of all, to Thee we raise,

This our hymn of grateful praise.

The earth is filled with Your glory
The earth is filled with Your glory

For the wonder of each hour,

Of the day and of the night,

Hill and vale, and tree and flower,

Sun and moon, and stars of light.

Lord of all, to Thee we raise,

This our hymn of grateful praise.
Lord of all, to Thee we raise,

This our hymn of grateful praise.

The earth is filled with Your glory
The earth is filled with Your glory

"...all the beauty of the world, the beauty that calls our admiration, our gratitude,our worthship at the earthly level, is meant as a set of hints, of conspiratorial whispers, of clues and suggestions and flickers of light, all nudging us into believing that behind the beautiful world is not random chance but the loving God." (N.T. Wright, For All God’s Worth)

For each perfect gift of Thine,

To our world so freely given,

Graces human and divine,

Flowers of earth and buds of Heaven.

Lord of all, to Thee we raise,

This our hymn of grateful praise.
Lord of all, to Thee we raise,

This our hymn of grateful praise.

The earth is filled with Your glory
The earth is filled with Your glory

"If we are created in the image and likeness of God, then whatever good, true, or beautiful things we can say about humanity or creation we can say of God exponentially. God is the beauty of creation and humanity multiplied to the infinite power." (Fr Richard Rohr)

The earth is filled with Your glory
The earth is filled with Your glory
The earth is filled with Your glory
