1 To Thee, O God, whose Father hand
Showers plenty o’er this smiling land,
And leads us through life’s devious ways,
We bring today our song of praise.
2 For earth with all its glorious things,
For life with all the joy it brings,
For busy day, for quiet night,
We thank Thee, Lord of Life and Light.
3 For teachers kind and classmates dear,
That make the days so happy here,
For strength our play or tasks to do,
Dear Father, we would thank, Thee, too.
4 For home, where all life’s blessings meet,
For brothers true and sisters sweet,
For father’s care and mother’s love,
We thank Thee, Lord of Heav’n above.
5 And now, through all the days to be,
O lead us, Father, tenderly,
And guide our steps by day and night,
Still toward Thine everlasting light.
6 "Praise God from whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him, all creatures here below,
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost."
