For the beauty of the earth,

cross on rocky cliff, blue skies and clouds

A beautiful remembrance

 

for the glory of the skies,

Paragliding on blue skies

Paragliding near Erlangen, Bavaria

 

for the love which from our birth

Pink and fuschia geraniums

Floral beauty in Dresden

over and around us lies;

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.
