We Thank Thee Lord For This Fair Earth Hymn, George E. L. Cotton
We thank Thee, Lord, for this fair earth, the glittering sky, the silver sea;
For all their beauty, all their worth. Their light and glory, come from Thee.
Thine are the flowers that cloath the ground. The trees that wave their arms above;
The hills that gird our dwellings round. As Thou dost gird Thine own with love.
Yet teach us still how far more fair. More glorious, Father in Thy sight;
Is one pure deed, one holy prayer, one heart that owns Thy Spirit’s might.
