Let every creature great and small

Praise God, who gives life to all.

Take a moment on the way,
to count the blessings of each day.

  

Lord, please teach us how to live
to love, to care, and freely give.

And may our life always include
an attitude of gratitude.
     
I want to thank you
Take time to thank you.

For every single day
Blessings on the way

Every breath I take
Thank you God for everything.

       

I want to thank you
Take time to thank you.
For every single smile
that makes life worth the while.

For every clear blue sky,
Thank you God for everything 
     
 
Lord, help us to be more like you,
Be patient in the tasks we do.

Accept the things we can’t control.
And trust when hardships take their toll.
    

Lord, help us to appreciate
that Life itself ‘s a gift so great;

That those who learn to just say “thanks”

Will rise above their feeble strength.

 

I want to thank you
Take time to thank you.

For every single day
Blessings on the way

Every breath I take
Thank you God for everything.

       

I want to thank you
Take time to thank you.
For every single smile
that makes life worth the while.

For every clear blue sky,
Thank you God for everything
