Thankful Heart: Day 21
We Thank Thee
We thank Thee, Lord, for ev'ry blessing
Flowing from Thy bountiful hand--
Golden field and orchard laden,
Harvest rich throughout our land;
All Thy beauty of creation,
Foaming sea and silver strand,
Verdant vale 'neath purple mountain,
Forest green and shining sand.
We thank Thee, Lord, for friends and loved ones,
And sweet joy and love they give
Through blest fellowship and kindness,
Making rich this life we live;
For our homes where love abideth,
Where those weary may receive
Rest and comfort by our fireside,
Where tired spirits may revive.
We thank Thee, Lord, for Thy salvation
Given through Thy wonderful Son,
Through His sacrifice at Calv'ry
On the cross--the vict'ry won!
When we climb the heights to Heaven,
After work on earth is done,
We shall thank Thee, Lord, forever,
For Thy greatest Gift--Thy Son.
