Thank You, God, For Everything

Thank you, God, for everything
The big things and the small,
For every good gift comes from God
The giver of them all.

And all too often we accept
Without any thanks or praise
the gift of God send as blessings
Each day in many ways.

And so at this time
We offer up a prayer
To thank you God for giving us
A lot more than our share....

First, thank You for the little things
That often come our way,
The things we take for granted
But don't mention when we pray,

Then, thank you for the miracles
We are much too blind to see,
And give us new awareness
Of our many gifts from Thee,

And help us to remember
That the key to life and living
Is to make each prayer a prayer of thanks
And every day Thanksgiving.
