Beauty Everywhere


Beauty Everywhere

35395, Children's Songbook, Nature and Seasons, Beauty Everywhere, 232–33

1. Skies are fair above us;
Leaves are on the trees.
Flower buds are nodding,
Swayed by gentle breeze.
Loving hearts are happy
While we work and play.
God is in the heaven;
Joyous is our day.

In sky and land and river wide,
The work of God I see;
Oh, may my heart be full of thanks
For all he gives to me.

2. Birds are in the treetops;
Bees go humming by.
Songs of joy, ascending,
Echo in the sky.
Ev'rywhere is beauty;
Life is at its morn.
Praise to God we offer
For the new day born.

Words: Matilda Watts Cahoon, 1881–1973

Music: Mildred Tanner Pettit, 1895–1977. Arr.
