1. SPIRITUAL MATTERS

For the beauty of the earth, For the beauty of the skies, For the love which from our birth Over and around us lies; 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; For the joy of ear and eye, For the heart and mind’s delight, For the mystic harmony Linking sense to sound and sight… lord of all, to Thee we raise This our hymn of grateful praise. ~ Folliot S. Pierpoint, 1864; Conrad Kocher, 1838 The Hymn Book (Presbyterian). 

“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our Thanksgiving.” ~W.T. Purkiser
