A LITTLE THANKS
Greeting God in the morning,
I lift my eyes
look skyward
and give a little thanks. . .
For a clean, fresh new morning
for life and mobility
for a chance to start anew
and serve my God —
I give a little thanks
For every meal, without fail
I bow my head
close my eyes
and give a little thanks . . .
For a place to eat in peace
for pure water in my cup
for food to fill and nourish
as He provides —
I give a little thanks
Then, as the moments unfold
With open eyes
I’m aware
He bids me give Him thanks . . .
For people I encounter
for every pain or pleasure
for His abiding presence
each passing hour —
I give a little thanks
And when the day is closing
I bow once more
gratefully
and give a little thanks . . .
For another day with God
for His gift of forgiveness
for joys waiting in heaven
My Lord, receive
My heartfelt prayer of thanks
