1 For the blessings that we share,
Give thanks to the Lord;
For the tokens of his love and care,
Give thanks to the Lord.

Refrain:
Give thanks to him,
Give thanks to him,
Who giveth us richly all things to enjoy,
Give thanks to him.

2 For the Gospel and its call,
Give thanks to the Lord;
For the Spirit as it comes to all,
Give thanks to the Lord. [Refrain]

3 For the anchor of the soul,
Give thanks to the Lord;
For the refuge when the billows roll,
Give thanks to the Lord. [Refrain]

4 For his saving grace and love,
Give thanks to the Lord;
For the glory of our home above,
Give thanks to the Lord. [Refrain]

Chicago writer of hymns, religious and romantic poetry, and temperance songs. Edward Albert Barnes was born January 24, 1842.
