	this our hymn of grateful praise.

	of the day and of the night, 
	hill and vale, and tree and flower, 
	sun and moon, and stars of light; (Refrain)

3.	For the joy of ear and eye, 
	for the heart and mind's delight, 
	for the mystic harmony 
	linking sense to sound and sight; (Refrain)

	brother, sister, parent, child, 
	friends on earth and friends above, 
	for all gentle thoughts and mild; (Refrain)

	lifteth holy hands above, 
	offering up on every shore 
	her pure sacrifice of love; (Refrain)

6.	For thyself, best Gift Divine, 
	to the world so freely given, 
	for that great, great love of thine, 
	peace on earth, and joy in heaven: (Refrain)
