30 Painting Challenge Day 20: For the Beauty of the Skies

For the Beauty of the Skies
Copyright 2016 Hirschten
Oil on Canvas 12" x 24"

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 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.

For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent child,
Friends on earth, and friends above,
For all gentle thoughts and mild,

Lord of all to thee we raise
this our hymn of grateful praise
-Folliott S. Pierpoint
