Saying, “Let them come to me.”

For the beauty of the earth,
For the glories of the skies,
For the love, for which from birth,
Over and around us lies.
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise.


For the wonder of each hour,
Of the day, and of the night,
Hill and dale, and tree and flower,
Sun 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;
For all gentle thoughts and mild;
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise
.

Amen!
