For the beauty of the earth,
for the glory of the skies,
for the love which from our birth
over and around us lies;
A chapel in the middle of the Alps, somewhere in Austria
Lord of all, to thee we raise
this our hymn of grateful praise.
The largest cathedral organ in the world, St. Stephan's Cathedral, Passau
A fond remembrance of my childhood, learning this hymn in my public elementary school. It's a lovely inspiration for sharing some of my favorite photos during the past ten months, so my goal is to continue this "series" on Sundays during December, in lyrics and pictures.
