“Children All Over the World,” Friend, Nov. 1975, 34–35
All over the world at the end of day
Heavenly Father’s children kneel down and pray,
Each saying thank you in his own special way,
Saying thank you, thank you in his own special way
Gracias, malo, wir danken dir,
All over the world tender voices hear.
Some say tak, others merci,
Okansha shimasu, we thank thee.
Our Heavenly Father hears them,
He understands each tongue.
Our Heavenly Father knows them,
He loves them, loves them, everyone.
German—wir danken dir (veer dawn-ken deer)
Japanese—Okansha shimasu (o-kan-sha she-mas)
