For the Beauty of the Earth


"I will lift mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.  My help comes from the Lord, which made heaven and earth."

Psalm 121:1-2


"For the beauty of the earth
For the beauty of the skies
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies
Christ, our Lord, to you we raise
this, our hymn of grateful praise."

This beautiful hymn was written in 1864 by Folliott Sandford Pierpoint when he was just 29 years old.  

Wherever you are today... in the mountains, in the office, at home or school... stop what you're doing and take a moment to look around at our magnificent planet called "earth" and thank God for the privilege of living here!
