Thank you, Father, for the sky

Representative Text

1 Thank you, Father, for the sky;
For the sun and rain and snow;
Thank you for the stars at night;
Thank you for the winds that blow.

2 Thank you for the birds and trees;
For the flowers that bloom os fair;
Thank you for the food we eat;
Thank you for your love and care.
