Subversive Undercroft #238: For the Beauty of the Earth

Teen fandom, the “proper” way to sing a hymn, plus we look at #416 from Hymnal ’82; For the Beauty of the Earth. 

 

For the Beauty of the Earth (with Jon’s animal blessing 3rd verse)

 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 song 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 song of grateful praise.

For the joy of furry love,
Scaly, feathered, lizards too,
friends on earth, and friends above,
the love we share comes from You,
Lord of All, to thee we raise
this, our song of grateful praise

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
