Lord we are thankful for all your love
Lord we are thankful for all your love,
Shown in the years passed in every way.
Each precious gift of life from above,
Counting our blessings on every day.
This awesome planet is hearth and home,
For the short time we are only lent.
Help us conserve and safeguard to come,
And keep and care for this earthly tent.
Lord we are thankful for all you give,
Kind providence more than we can say.
All that is wanted for us to live,
Let that be for our world’s harmony.
This sacred place is for praise and prayer,
In years unborn let songs ever ring.
Down through the ages may people dare,
To meet our risen Christ servant king.
Lord we are thankful for living faith,
Inspiring us through all our life space.
Jesus’ self giving power Spirit breath,
Leading us forward to His embrace.
