Thanksgiving Everyday


For the blue of the sky,
the life we breathe.

The stalwart oak,
the autumn leaf.

For the grandeur of mountains,
golden meadows below.

For the bright of the sun.
and the moon's silvry glow.

For the black of night,
with stars on high.

For the laughter of children,
and a babe's soft cry.

For the essence of spices,
the bread we eat.

The green, green grass,
Yes, and two good feet.

For the warmth of friends,
a lov'd-one's embrace.
A hearty laugh,
  and a smiling face.

For all these and myriad more,
We lift our voices in praise to sing,

  Thank YOU God, for Everything:
