Hymn/Song Information

We thank thee Lord for this fair earth




We thank Thee, Lord,
for this fair earth,
The glittering sky, the silver sea;
For all their beauty, all their worth,
Their light and glory,
come from Thee.


Thanks for the flowers
that clothe the ground,
The trees that wave
their arms above,
The hills that gird
our dwellings round,
As Thou dost gird
Thine own with love.


Yet teach us still
how far more fair,
More glorious, Father, in Thy sight,
Is one pure deed, one holy prayer,
One heart that owns
Thy Spiritís might.


So, while we gaze
with thoughtful eye
On all the gifts
Thy Love has given,
Help is in Thee to live and die,
By Thee to rise
from earth to heaven.


---Alternative verses---


Thine are the flowers
that clothe the ground,
The trees that wave
their arms above,
The hills that gird
our dwellings round,
As Thou dost gird
Thine own with love.
