lyrics

VERSE 1
For the beauty of the earth
For the glory of the skies
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies

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

CHORUS
Lord of all, to Thee we raise,
This our hymn of grateful praise

VERSE 2
For the meekness of that hour
God the Son in human flesh
Sent to free us from the power
And the grip of darkness

For the sins of fallen men
Hear him groan upon the tree
Bearing all the weight of sin
That from sin we might be free

VERSE 3
For the hour when Jesus cried
“It is finished, it is done
This my life a sacrifice
Souls for God that I have won”

For the dawning of that day
Christ is risen from the grave
See the darkness fade away
He alive with pow’r to save
