[this our hymn of grateful praise.]


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.

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 ear and eye,
for the heart and mind’s delight,
for the mystic harmony,
linking sense to sound and sight;
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
this our hymn of grateful praise.

for the joy of human love,
brother, sister, parent, child,
friends on earth and friends above,
for all gentle thoughts and mild;
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
this our hymn of grateful praise.

for Thy church, that evermore
lifteth holy hands above,
offering up on every shore
her pure sacrifice of love;
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
this our hymn of grateful praise.

for Thyself, best Gift Divine,
to the world so freely given,
for that great, great love of thine,
peace on earth, and joy in heaven:
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
this our hymn of grateful praise.

  1. Hi Han, I enjoyed the photos. I could tell where you took many of them. You did some awsome shots. This is one of my favorite hymns and it was nice to read it as I scanned the photos. I am very proud of you and the beautiful person you are. I love you very much. Grandma
