Thanksgiving Song
For the Beauty of the Earth

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.  

This first graphic shows the "Middle C"  arrangement, for beginning piano:

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.  

This video (Barlow Girl) changes the meter of the hymn, but is effective (sorry, there seems to be an ad first):

If you and your beginner student wish to turn this into a duet, follow the chord symbols above the melody.  

There are a lot of chord changes in this hymn!   But if an accompaniment uses a flowing chord pattern, those fast changes won't be necessary.

Now here are lead sheets for treble, bass, and viola clefs.  (Piano or four-part harmony is at the bottom of the page):

As a Thanksgiving Day treat, I'm placing here a short NON-MUSIC VIDEO from a radio host whom I adore (Dennis Prager), who speaks about the importance of GRATITUDE. 

HAPPINESS, he says, IS IMPOSSIBLE without an attitude of gratitude, or THANKSGIVING.  He says, "What is the single most important characteristic, or source, of happiness?  Gratitude.  ...gratitude leads to both happiness and goodness."

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!
