A Thanksgiving Prayer

    There is so much to say today;

    I don’t know where to start.

    How can I begin to tell

    The thanks that fill my heart?

    Should I begin with family,

    Or love or joy or sunlight,

    Or peace or health or happiness,

    Or home or birds or stars at night?

    For all these things—and many more—

    I thank Thee, Father dear.

    But most of all I thank Thee

    For always being near.
