Thank you Lord for this day
Fill it with your peace I pray
Thank you for all my friends
Whose willingness has no ends.
Thank you for my family's love
Embracing like the wings of a dove.
Thank you for the fruitful fields
All the crops and cereal it yields.
Thank you for my head to rest
Peaceful sleep that I am blessed
Thank you for the birds that sing
Your praises in the morning bring.
Thank you for my path you tread
To guide me to your presence lead
Thank you God for showing me
How wonderful life on earth can be. Amen
