Giving Thanks



For the beauty of the earth; 
For the beauty 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.



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:
Lord of all, to thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise.


For the joy of human love, 
Brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends of earth, and friends above, 
For all gentle thoughts and mild: 
Lord of all to thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise.
                     (Hymn: For The Beauty of the Earth - Pierpoint)


Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!
May your blessings be abundant, 
And your gratitude acknowledged.
