Thanking God for the beauty of the world

Here in Devon we live in one of the most beautiful areas of England (and some would say "The World"!) and we are in a special time of the year with all nature around us springng into new life.  Using this well known hymn and thoughts of spring with its promise of new life  for us all, take a few minutes to thank God for the world he has created.


  1. 1. For the beauty of the earth,
    For the beauty of the skies,
    For the love which from our birth
    Over and around us lies,
  2. (Chorus)
    Lord of all, to thee we raise
    This our hymn of grateful praise.
  3. 2. For the beauty 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,
  4. 3. For the joy of human love,
    Brother, sister, parent, child,
    Friends on earth, and friends above,
    For all gentle thoughts and mild,
  5. Folliott S. Pierpoint, 1835-1917
