A Gift of Gratitude

For faithful parents and people to love
Beautiful skies of day and of night
The roar of a lion and coo of a dove
And clouds aloft in their fanciful flight
O Lord we give you thanks

For a child anointed and true to the call
Who teaches the truth, of life and the way
With power and strength may the enemy fall
To save us He tarries the terrible day
O Lord we give you thanks

For the walk and the waiting your Spirit abides
The fruit You provide we consume and we share
Amidst sometimes falling and others great strides
Joyous for drawing as close as we dare
O Lord we give you thanks

For giving is strength and a will to endure
Hope that is sure and victory sound
To be under your wings, safe and secure
As voices of men and angels resound
O Lord we give you thanks
