A Grateful Heart
to daily honor you with my praise,
eyes to see all thy hand imparts
words to express the splendor of thy ways
As a little child help me see
blessings like a frog or toad,
marvel at a flower, a honey bee,
or the smell of a field freshly mowed.
Open my eyes to see even trials
as moments of growing closer to thee,
to hold as blessings all the smiles
of those nearest and dearest to me.
Father, I know I don't deserve
abundant blessings from thy hand,
but I will vow to always serve
and live my life as you command.
Help me acknowledge all you give
the grace, mercy and love you supply.
May gratitude be expressed in how I live.
Your name be glorified even when I die.
