Father, We Thank Thee

Representative Text

1 Father, we thank Thee for the night,
And for the pleasant morning light;
For rest and food and loving care,
And all that makes the world so fair.

2 Help us to do the things we should,
To be to others kind and good;
In all we do, in work or play,
To love Thee better day by day.
