We Thank Thee


With simplicity
1. For each new morning with its light, Father, we thank Thee;
For rest and shelter of the night, Father, we thank Thee;
For health and food, for love and friends,
For ev’rything Thy goodness sends,
Father, in heaven, we thank Thee.
2. For mother love and father care, Father, we thank Thee;
For brothers strong and sisters fair, Father, we thank Thee;
For love at home and here each day,
For guidance lest we go astray.
Father in heaven, we thank Thee.
3. For flow’rs that bloom about our feet, Father, we thank Thee;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet, Father, we thank Thee;
For song of bird, and hum of bee,
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee.
