"For the Beauty of the Earth" - Recessional Hymn 08 June 2008 (Youth Appreciation Sunday)

Church of the Redeemer, Episcopal
Morristown, NJ, USA

1-For the beauty of the earth, for the glory of the skies,
For the children ev'rywhere with their sad or joyful cries,
God of all, to you we raise this our hymn of grateful praise.

2-For the beauty of the earth, for the glory of the skies,
For each child whose life of worth may be missed by human eyes,
God of all, to you we raise this our hymn of grateful praise.

3-For the hungry, homeless ones seeking life despite despair,
For the nations buying guns while the children wait for care,
God of all, this prayer we raise: Let us bring forth better days.

4-Thanks for gifts that children bring: love and trust and open hands.
Help us give them songs to sing, meet their needs as love commands.
God of all, this prayer we raise: Let us bring forth better days.

Tune: Dix
Text: Virginia Sargent
