Red Pumpkin by Thomas J. Story

 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 the beauty of each hour,

Of the day and of the night,

Hill and vale, and tree and flower,
Sun and moon, and stars of light.

From the traditional Thanksgiving hymn
"For the Beauty of the Earth" by
 Folliott S. Pierpoint, 1864

Wishing everyone a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving!
