in Singing a New Song, volume 1 

++++
For all the blessings in our life,

For peace and calm amidst the strife,

A thankful hymn of joy we raise

In celebration and in praise.

 

For parents, children, family ties,

For rainy days and clear blue skies,

A thankful hymn of joy we raise

In celebration and in praise.

 

For times of stress, when we can’t cope

That are the doorways to new hope,

A thankful hymn of joy we raise

In celebration and in praise.

 

For hearing sounds, for seeing sights,

For twilight peace and guiding lights,

A thankful hymn of joy we raise

In celebration and in praise.

 

For God through all and in us all,

Surrounds what is, is overall,

A thankful hymn of joy we raise

With great elation in our praise.
