for the beauty of the earth

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 as the soil makes the sprout come up

and a garden causes seeds to grow,

so the Sovereign LORD

will make righteousness and praise

spring up before all nations.

Isaiah 61:11

"No eye has seen,
no ear has heard,
no mind has conceived
what God has prepared
for those who love him."
~1 Corinthians 2:9
