Earth Day

For the beauty of the earth, For the glories of the skies...Lord of all to Thee we raise, this our hymn of grateful praise.

Fair are the meadows, fairer still the woodlands, Robed in the blooming garb of spring...Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer, who makes the woeful heart to sing.

I sing the mighty pow'r of God that made the mountains rise, that spread the flowing seas abroad, and built the lofty skies.   

This is my Father's world...The purple headed mountain, The river running by...the Lord God made them all.

 And all the trees of the field will clap their hands...while you go out with joy.

Morning has broken...
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden, Sprung in competeness where His feet pass.

This is my Father's world, And to my listening ears
All nature sings and round me rings the music of the spheres.
This is my Father's world: I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas--His hand the wonders wrought.

Happy Earth Day, Happy Creation Day.  If you plant a tree today, thank Him.  And if you don't, thank Him anyway.

PS. I don't know why the boxes appeared, nor how to make them disappear.  Sigh.  Just reminds me that I'm the sub-creator, even here.
