1 Our Father gives us happy hours,
He gives the flow’rs,
The sunbeams bright, the gentle show’rs,
Just because He loves us so.

Just because He loves us so,
He keeps us in His care;
Just because He loves us, loves us so,
His care and gifts are ev’rywhere.
All around are blessings free,
Ev’rywhere that we may be;
All will praise our Father gratefully,
Just because He loves us so!

2 He gives us blossoms bright and fair,
The birds in air,
The joy and gladness ev’rywhere,
Just because He loves us so. [Chorus]

3 He sends His blessings ev’ry day
Along the way;
And so we praise Him as we pray,
Just because He loves us so. [Chorus]
