“Gratitude,” Friend, Nov. 2004, 7
I’m grateful for the sunshine’s rays
That brighten each new day.
I love the peace that always comes
At nighttime when I pray.
I’m grateful for the robin’s song
When days are long and warm.
I love, when autumn fades, to hear
The winter wind perform.
I’m grateful for the busyness
That every weekday brings.
I love, on Sunday, to sit still
And think of holy things.
