"Father We Thank Thee"


       
 
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 and play,
To grow more loving everyday.
