“Our Thanksgiving Hymn” by Darius M. Ratcliff

OUR  THANKSGIVING  HYMN

For thy wondrous gift of life,

Crowned with blessings rare;

For the sunshine and the rain,

Tokens of thy care;

Father of love, we thank Thee.

For our homes where those we love

Teach us from thy word,

For the privilege to go

To thy temples, Lord;

Father above, we thank Thee;

Father of love, we thank Thee.

For our land where freedom reigns,

Sacred to our trust;

For our youth who give their all,

But not for greed or lust;

Father above, we thank Thee;

Father of love, we thank Thee.

For the Christ of Calvary,

Through whose cross we gain

Fellowship with Thee, our God,

Thus with Thee to reign;

Father above, we thank Thee;

Father of love, we thank Thee.
