For the soft-falling dew
That gives an early morning drink
To the things You created,
We give Thee thanks!

For the whispering wind
Blowing gently through the trees
Teasing our hair with its breeze,
We give Thee thanks!

For birds on the wind
That thrill us o'er and o'er
With the lovely songs they sing,
We give Thee thanks.

For flowers all aglow
With faces to the sky
Standing cheerfully in a row,
We give Thee thanks!

For soft-flowing rain
And the freshness it brings
It's tears kissing each living thing
We give Thee thanks!

For the rainbow in the sky
Blending their hues in perfect harmony
Thrilling our hearts,
We give Thee thanks!

For the sunsets' golden hush
As all the world slows its pace
And ends its rush,
We give Thee thanks!

For the holiness of twilight
When the presence of God is known
And we know that we are not alone,
We give Thee thanks!

For the soothing hush of darkness
When our eyes, so weary, close
And our Savior watches over us,
We give Thee thanks!

For the glow of love and kindness
Surrounding us in its care
For the peace and joy of knowing
That Your love is always there, Lord,
We give Thee thanks!
