For The Beauty Of The Earth

So much beauty all around and all I have to do is push the shutter button to capture it.
I hope you enjoy the following scenes as much as I do.

 Enjoy the scenes as you think on the words of the song,
For The Beauty Of The Earth.


For the beauty of the earth; For the beauty of the skies, For the love which from our birth over and around us lies: Lord of all, to thee we raise this our joyful hymn of 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 light: Lord of all, to thee we raise this our joyful hymn of praise.


For the joy of human love, Brother, sister, parent, child, friends of earth, and friends above, For all gentle thoughts and mild: Lord of all to thee we raise this our joyful hymn of praise.


For each perfect gift of thine to our race so freely given, Graces human and divine, Flow'rs of earth and buds of heav'n: Lord of all to thee we raise this our joyful hymn of praise.


 Something To Think About:
Have you paused to praise God today?

  15. Such a beautiful hymn you chose to showcase your beautiful pictures Ruth! I think it takes a bit more skill than just clicking the shutter, you have a blessed talent from the Lord to capture such beauty in your lens! I love the first picture, with Fall and Winter mingling :)
