I Thank You, God


Dear God, I thank You for
my health... My children
and my wife... And all the
other blessings You... Have
added to my life... I thank
You for my many friends...
Their kind and timely aid
... My daily occupation
and... The progress I have
made...My home and all
the comforts I... Enjoy from
day to day... And for the
church where I may go... To
worship You and pray... My
heart is ever grateful for...
The sun and wind and rain
... And for the moon and
stars that shine... Upon my
window-pane... Dear God,
I thank you for each dawn
... Of dreams and smiles
and tears... And for the
wistful memories... Of
youthful yesteryears.

James J. Metcalfe
