For The Beauty Of The Earth

(G) For the beauty of the (D) earth, (G) For the (D) beauty (G) of (A) the (D) skies, (Em) For (B7) the (Em) love (B7) which (Em) from (F#) our (B) birth, (Em) Over (Am) and a(B)round us (Em) lies. Chorus: (G) Father (D) unto (G) You (Em) we (D) raise, (G) This our (C) sacri(G)fice (D) of (G) 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 night. Chorus For the joy of love from God, That we share on earth below; For our friends and family, And the love that they can show, Chorus For each perfect gift divine, To our race so freely given. Thank you Lord that they are mine, Here on earth as gifts from heaven. Chorus
