English author Folliott S. Pierpoint's well-known hymn text, 'For the Beauty of the Earth' enjoys a fresh, new melodic setting for children's voices. The congregation joins the children singing the familiar hymn tune, DIX, on the final stanza. The children add a climactic coda that is a reprise of the new tune's refrain. Suitable for Thanksgiving, general praise and intergenerational occasions.
