Representative Text

1 We thank Thee, dear Father,
For care through the night,
For flowers that blossom,
For morning’s clear light;

2 For wind, rain and sunshine,
For home, friends and food;
From Thee comes each blessing,
And ev’rything good.

3 Our Father in heaven,
Be with us each day,
And help us to love Thee,
In work and in play.
