He's the Lilly of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star, He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.
William W. Fry
We give you thanks, most gracious God, for the beauty of earth and sky and sea; for the richness of mountains, plains, and rivers; for the songs of birds and the loveliness of flowers. We praise you for these good gifts, and pray that we may safeguard them for all posterity. Grant that we may continue to grow in our grateful enjoyment of your abundant creation. To the honor and glory of your Name, now and forever. Amen
