Giving Thanks

Full Text

1 For air and sunshine pure and sweet,
We thank our heavenly Father,
For grass that grows beneath our feet,
We thank our heavenly Father;
For flowers that all around us bloom,
That ever yield their sweet perfume,
For birds that sing in joyful tune,
We thank our heav'nly Father.

2 For leafy trees, with fruit and shade,
We thank our heavenly Father,
For things of beauty he hath made,
We thank our heavenly Father;
For daily blessings, full and free,
For leading when we cannot see,
For all his care o'er you and me,
We thank our heavenly Father.

3 For Jesus, born a little child,
We thank our heavenly Father;
For Jesus, loving, kind, and mild,
We thank our heavenly Father;
For books of his that sed a glow
Upon our way, and help us know
That like him we can ever grow,
We thank our heavenly Father.
We thank our heav'nly Father.
