1. We lift our hearts in thanks today
For all the gifts of life;
And first, for peace that turns away
The enemies of strife;

2. And next, the beauty of the earth,
Its flowers and lovely things,
The spring’s great miracle of birth,
With sound of songs and wings;

3. Then, harvests of its teeming soil
In orchard, croft and field;
But more, the service and the toil
Of those who helped them yield;

4. And most, the gifts of hope and love,
Of wisdom, truth and right,
The gifts that shine like stars above
To chart the world by night.

5. As we receive, so let us give,
With ready, generous hand,
Rich fruitage from the lives we live
To bless our home and land.
