1 For the Father’s bounteous care
Given from above,
Round about us ev’rywhere
Tokens of his love;
For the blessings of our days
Which his grace imparts,
Sing we now a hymn of praise
Forth from grateful hearts.

So with gladness in our hearts
Sing praises, sing praises,
Glad praises;
Let us sin a hymn of praise
For the blessings of our days;
There is gladness in our hearts this happy day.

2 Let us praise him for the gift
Of his only Son;
He who came our souls to lift,
Safe from error won.
For the story of the cross
That on earth he bore,
Triumph over earthly loss,
Praise him evermore. [Chorus]

3 Send the wondrous message on,
Into lands afar,
Where with hope and courage gone
Countless thousands are.
Tell them of the Father’s love,
Give them comfort new,
That with joy all ills above
They may praise him, too. [Chorus]
