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.

Chorus:
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]
