Thankful for the breath of life sustaining For our bread and water, clothes and food; Thankful for the health for its partaking, And for Heaven's gifts, so pure and good. Thankful for a home and for its comforts, For a place of shelter from the storm; Thankful for the fellowship of kindred, For a haven where the love is warm. But beyond these comforts and their blessing, Should we not be thankful most of all For redeeming love and grace bounding, Thro' the Christ, who saved us from the Fall? Thankful we should be for sins forgiven, For the Blood of Christ, its power to save; For its precious worth to lift the sinner From the depths of sin, of death, the grave. Thankful for a seat within the Heavens, Hid with Christ in God-oh, place secure! In His love and heart and hand forever-Precious place of dwelling, and so pure. Then for blessings numberless, unnoticed By our finite minds. so small and mean, But our finite minds, so small and mean, But all glory, honor, adoration, Be to Him we love, though still unseen!
