Beauty Everywhere

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Smoothly

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.

[Chorus]

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.

[Chorus]

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.
