For the Beauty of the Earth

About the Song

Music by Conrad Kocher, Lyrics by Folliott S. Pierpoint, Arranged by Sally DeFord

This arrangement is very simple. It’s designed to be learned quickly by the smaller choir. It uses the traditional melody, and there’s really nothing tricky about it. An optional flute obbligato is included for both versions.

The accompaniment is the same for both versions, and can also be used to accompany a soloist, though there is no solo score.

Lyrics

For the beauty of the earth;
For the beauty of the skies
For the love that from our birth
over and around us lies
Lord of all to thee we raise
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;
Ssun and moon and stars of light
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;
Ffor all gentle thoughts and mild
Lord of all to thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise
