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 wonder of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale, and tree and flower,
Sun and moon, and stars of lights.
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!

- F. S. Pierpoint
