I thank You for these gifts, dear God,
Upon Thanksgiving Day
For love and laughter and the faith
That makes me kneel to pray.
For life that lends me happiness,
And sleep that gives me rest,
These are the gifts that keep my heart
Serene within my breast.
Love, laughter, faith, and life and sleep,
We own them, everyone
They carry us along the road
That leads from sun to sun.
