Resource: Hymns (Music and nature show God's glory)

Few things can communicate God's glory and love like music and nature. We find the best of both in the LDS hymnbook. Here are just a few examples:

#33 Our Mountain Home So Dear

The streamlet, flow’r, and sod
Bespeak the works of God;
And all combine,
And all combine,
With most transporting grace,
His handiwork to trace,
Thru nature’s smiling face,
In art divine.

#62 All Creature of Our God and King

All creatures of our God and King,
Lift up your voice and with us sing,

#92 For the Beauty of the Earth

For the beauty of the earth,
For the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise.

What are your favorite hymns (from the LDS hymnbook and beyond) that celebrate God's glory and creation?
