We Thank Thee

The two following poems are a prime example of all the things we often take for granted and yet should be just as grateful for. A lot of the time when we go to give our thanks for all thing things we have been blessed with we tend to give thanks for the bigger more obvious things. Don't get me wrong, those things are super important to give thanks for but there are many smaller, less obvious things all around us that we should give thanks for as well. These poems are a good reminder for us all to thank God for the beauty all around us and the senses we have been given to take them all in.

Best Wishes / Quotes, Phrases and Sayings / Thanksgiving Blessing / We Thank Thee

  1. We Thank Thee
    For flowers that bloom about our feet;
    For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
    For song of bird, and hum of bee;
    For all things fair we hear or see,
    Father in heaven, we thank Thee.

    For blue of stream and blue of sky;
    For pleasant shade of brances high;
    For fragrant air and cooling breeze;
    For beauty of the blooming trees,
    Father in heaven, we thank Thee.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

    For the blue sky and clouds above,

    Bestowed so freely everywhere,
    Give us grateful hearts we pray,
    To thank Thee this Thanksgiving Day.
    Mattie M. Renwick

Our busy lives can sometimes take us away from the things that really count. Don't let your life make you forget of all the amazing things around you that deserve a thankful pray to the creator. God is a artist in many ways. This is not only proven in the beautiful things he has brought to life, but also in the skies, the oceans and the landscape.
