"Father in Heaven we thank Thee!"


Father in Heaven we thankThee!
 
For flowers that bloom about our feet;
          For song of bird and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,
          Father in heaven we thank Thee!
For blue of stream and blue of sky;
          For pleasant shade of branches high;
For fragrant air and cooling breeze;
          For beauty of the blooming trees;
Father in heaven we thank Thee!
          For mother love and father care,
For brothers strong and sisters fair;
          For love at home and here each day;
For guidance lest we go astray,
          Father in heaven we thank Thee!
For this new morning with its light;
          For rest and shelter of the night;
For health and food, for love and friends;
          For every thing His goodness sends,
Father in heaven we thank Thee!

          -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Yours in Christ,
Paul N. F.
