Here is a beautiful new setting to a beloved text by F.S. Pierpoint and adapted by Margaret Hardy.  Strophic and hymn-like, this solo wonderfully builds to a burst of joy in the second half of each verse. Alternating between 4/4 and 3/4, this lilting solo will be a congregation favorite.

For the Beauty of the Earth
Music by Glenn Hardy
Lyrics by F.S. Pierpoint, adapted by Margaret Hardy

For the beauty of the earth,
For the beauty 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.
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.
This, our hymn of grateful praise.

For all perfect gifts of thine,
To each one so freely given,
Life and love and Truth divine, Here on earth the hues of heaven:
Lord of all to thee we raise
This, our hymn of grateful praise.
This, our hymn of grateful praise.
