Let us give thanks for this wonderful day
For the gift of life and the hope to pray,
The heavens fair and the earth so sweet
The friends so dear that we chance to meet.
Let us give thanks for the sunshine bright
The light of dawn and the stars at night,
The springtime rain and the summer breeze
The mountains, the streams, and the spreading trees.
Let us give thanks for these blessings rare,
For a family dear and the love we share,
The little ones and the smiles they bring
Such a goodly portion of everything.
Let us give thanks in a humble way
With a peace in our hearts as we kneel to pray,
Our eyes and our souls ever looking above
Let us give thanks for our God of love.
