Song background:

I have always loved both of these hymns: “We Thank Thee, Oh God, for a Prophet” and “For the Beauty of the Earth.”  I think sometimes, though, we don’t appreciate the former as a hymn of gratitude for many blessings; we just think of it as a hymn showing gratitude for our living prophet.  I hope by changing the melody of this hymn, we and our audience can pay more attention to the words and the many blessings it talks about.  I also created a new melody for “For the Beauty of the Earth” so the two could be sung together.

This arrangement is written for 2 voices, but can be sung by a full choir with women on the first part and men on the second part just an octave lower, or really, however you want to do it!  The first verse is sung by Voice 1 alone; the second verse is sung by Voice 2 alone, and the third verse, both voices combine and then sing the ending together.

I hope you enjoy it!
