A Month of Thanksgivings

A Hymn of Thankgiving

Posted by Jeff Bridgeman on

One of the traditional hymns that’s sung this Thanksgiving time of year is entitled "For the Beauty of the Earth". In it, everything is seen as a part of the beauty of Creation which the Lord has given us. From that realization of provision comes the strong chorus “Lord of All, to Thee we raise, this our hymn of grateful praise.” 

This Thanksgiving, try reading the hymn around the table as a prayer of Praise for God’s goodness.

“For the Beauty of the earth, for the glory of the skies, for the love which from our 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 vale 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.

For Thy Church that evermore lifteth holy hands above, offering up on every shore her pure sacrifice of love;

               Lord of All to Thee we raise, this our hymn of grateful praise.

For Thyself, best gift divine, to our race so freely given; for that great, great love of Thine, peace on earth and joy in heaven;

               Lord of All to Thee we raise, this our hymn of grateful praise.

“Give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds.”  Psalm 107.8
