Representative Text

1 We thank Thee, Lord, for life and breath,
Provided us so free;
For at Thy hand we live and move—
Our all must come from Thee.

We thank Thee, blessed Master,
With mortal tongue below;
But when we gain that heav’nly plane,
Eternal thanks shall flow.

2 For food, dear Lord, we raise to Thee
Our song of thankful praise—
For giving us that living bread
Which gladdens all our days. [Refrain]

3 We thank Thee, Lord, for raiment, too,
For slumber in the night,
For clothing our immortal souls
In shining robes of white. [Refrain]

4 We thank Thee, Lord, for Thy dear Son,
For Thy unfailing grace;
We thank Thee for the hope to see
Our Savior face to face. [Refrain]
