Thanksgiving song for school, church, or just quiet personal meditation, "For the Beauty of the Earth" is a very pretty hymn. Arranged for beginner piano, 4-part harmony or piano, and other instruments, download these Thanksgiving songs free.
Thanksgiving songs are hard to find, but this song is one of the better-known hymns. For the Beauty of the Earth lyrics paint a picture of why we love our world and all that is in it, and the gratitude that sometimes wells up inside us.

Thanks a lot for building such a nice site where people can easily find and free download sheet music for beginners. I am going to start teaching piano to kids. I was just searching for some basic interesting songs for my pupil. Here, I found a wonderful site where I spent more than 3 hours and downloaded some music. Thanks again for making my day easier.
THANK YOU! This website is a God-send! :D I took piano lessons as a kid, a little music theory, and now I'm a homeschooling mom hoping to pass on anything I can to my kids about music. It is such a gift, for so many reasons!
I have been slowly giving my oldest daughter whatever my memory can dredge up, scouring the internet for free music she can do, but your website with its instructions AND tips on how to teach pieces are going to help me SO much in this endeavor. I just wanted to tell you thank you. Really really! THANK YOU!
