"For The Beauty Of The Earth"

FTLComm - Tisdale - Sunday, October 7, 2001
The picture sequence below includes three pictures which were not taken this morning. We at Ensign give Thanks this day and may you and yours experience a peaceful and happy thanksgiving day together.

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 sacrifice of praise.

For the joy of ear and eye,
For the heart and mindís delight
For the mystic harmony
Linking sense to sound and sight
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our sacrifice of 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 sacrifice of praise.

For the joy of human love
Brother, sister, parent, child
Friends on earth, and friends above
For all gentle thoughts and mild,
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our sacrifice of praise.

   

For each perfect gift of Thine
To our race so freely given
Graces human and divine
Flowers of earth, and buds of heaven,
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our sacrifice of praise.

Folliott Sandford Pierpoint, 1835 - 1917
