Today, dear Lord, we gather here
In fellowship and love,
Mindful of the wondrous gifts
That come from thee, above.
For this feast, we thank thee, Lord
For health, that here abounds;
The love, that fills and warms our hearts-
For children’s happy sounds.
For shelter in our cozy homes
For freedom of this land;
The right to live the life we choose-
For nature’s bounty, grand.
These blessings you bestow on us
Outshine all want and strife.
We thank thee, Lord for this day,
We thank thee, Lord, for life.
