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. 

Free-Fall-Wallpaper-Pictures-Moon-Fall-1024x819For 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. 

cross-of-christFor 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.

    Beautifully illustrated! I sat here and sang through the song as I read the words…it is one of my favorites! And love that the picture can become a background on my computer monitor! Praying for you, Kim.
