Every Day Is Thanksgiving

Thank You, dear God, for birds that sing,
For butterflies with silken wing;
For golden sunrise in the sky,
Sunsets that bid the day goodbye.

Thank You, o Lord, for rain and snow,
For trees and flowers, all things that grow.
We thank You for the food we eat,
And for the shoes upon our feet.

A special thanks for family love
And for Your guidance from above.
Please help us, Lord, we humbly pray,
Remember You with thanks each day.
