615. We Thank You for Your Blessings

1 We thank you for your blessings,
Almighty Lord, our King;
We thank you for the harvests,
Yes, Lord, for ev'rything:
For flow'rs that bloom in springtime,
For rip'ning fruit and grain,
For all the precious sunshine,
And for the gentle rain.

2 This day of great thanksgiving
We count them one by one:
Our free and fruitful country,
The great things you have done,
Our family, our loved ones,
The guardian angels' care,
Our very self and heartbeat --
Lord, hear our thankful prayer!

3 But best of all your blessings,
The rainbow of your love,
Are all the many mercies
Your Word brings from above.
Our life now has full meaning --
Christ Jesus is our God!
Thanksgiving shall be living
The way the Savior trod.
