‘For the Beauty of the Earth’

Looking out my bedroom window this morning, with the birds calling, with the trees coming into leaf, and an April shower gently falling, I felt like I really had to have this hymn today: For the Beauty of the Earth. 

I chose this video, from “Children’s Scripture Memory Hymns,” for the photos, many of which bring me back to beautiful, real places that I’ve known, most of them now all paved over and destroyed, but preserved, I pray, in the Kingdom of God who created them and loved their beauty in the first place.
