Thankful Heart: Day 11
For the Blessings of the Year
For each beauty that I know,
For the gifts Thou dost bestow:
Clothing, home, and family dear,
For my friends both far and near;
Thank You, Lord, You giveth me
Every blessing full and free.
Thank You, Lord, for snows that fall,
Summer rains, and birds that call;
Thank You, Lord, for food we eat;
Fruit and grain; and seasons sweet.
Thank You, Lord, You marked by hand
Every bounty of the land.
Thank You, Lord, for healing sure,
Goodly moments, calm and pure;
For Thy guidance, peace and cheer,
For each blessing of the year...
Lord, these words I lift to Thee
Knowing well Thou lovest me.
