    Beauty Everywhere

    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.
