The sun brings light and warmth by day,
The moon throws down her gentler rays.
Good rain brings water which we need
To wash, to drink and grow our seeds.
May I always think to say
Thanks for the blessings of this day.
The clothes we wear; shoes for our feet.
The kindly words from folk we meet;
Animals and birds who sing;
Lovely flowers which come each spring.
Remind me always, God, to say
Thanks for your blessings on this day.
Thanks for kind people that we meet,
At home, at school, and in the street.
Loving words and friendly smiles
Make our lives much more worthwhile.
Let us not forget to say -
Thank you God for every day.
