From the masterful pen of Tom Fettke comes this lyric song of praise to the Creator God. Recalling our rich hymn tradition, it incorporates references to "For the Beauty of the Earth" and "This Is My Father's World," deftly blending them with newly composed music that soars brilliantly to the final acclamation, "Alleluia!" Suitable for worship throughout the year, it is especially appropriate for harvest and Thanksgiving, Christ the King and Ascension, Pentecost, Trinity Sunday, and Father's Day. Optional parts for brass and percussion, and a Performance/Accompaniment CD are also available.
