Jesus asks us to give thanks every single day;
Yes. Jesus asks us to give thanks every single day;
With a ‘Thank you’ here, a ‘Thank you’ there,
Here a ‘Thanks’, there a ‘Thanks’, everywhere a ‘Thank you’;
Jesus asks us to give thanks every single day.

Jesus asks us to be kind when we talk today;
Yes. Jesus asks us to be kind when we talk today;
With a kind word here, a kind word there,
Here a word, there a word, everywhere a kind word;
‘Thank you’ here, ‘Thank you’ there,
Here a ‘Thanks’, there a ‘Thanks’, everywhere a ‘Thank you’;
Jesus asks us to be kind when we talk today.

Jesus asks us to be fair when we play today;
Yes. Jesus asks us to be fair when we play today;
With a fair play here, a fair play there;
Here a play, there a play, everywhere a fair play;
Kind word here, kind word there,
Here a word, there a word, everywhere a kind word;
‘Thank you’ here, ‘Thank you’ there,
Here a ‘Thanks’, there a ‘Thanks’, everywhere a ‘Thank you’;
Jesus asks us to be fair when we play today.

Jesus asks us to be good every single day;
Yes. Jesus asks us to do good every single day;
With a good deed here, a good deed there,
Here a deed, there a deed, everywhere a good deed;
Fair play here, fair play there;
Here a play, there a play, everywhere a fair play;
Kind word here, kind word there,
Here a word, there a word, everywhere a kind word;
‘Thank you’ here, ‘Thank you’ there,
Here a ‘Thanks’, there a ‘Thanks’, everywhere a ‘Thank you’;
Jesus asks us to be good every single day
