There is probably no more archetypal Thanksgiving Day song than this. It should easily be the quintessential Earth Day song as well.
It’s a song every child probably knows by hear. As such, it deserves a simple, childlike, reverent simplicity. That’s what I’m shootintg for her with organ flute stops and a woodwind quartet.
To sing along, here’s a link to a representative text of four verses: https://hymnary.org/text/for_the_beauty_of_the_earth.
One thought on “For the Beauty of the Earth”
I hear those notes and the lyrics that we sang in public grade school come to mind, though I had to look them up to be sure.
For the Beauty of the earth. For the Beauty of the skies. For the love which from our birth
over and around us lies. God above to thee we raise this our joyful hymn of praise…….
Thanks for choosing it and thanks for the organ sounds. Maybe we can sing it when choir is together again.
