1O give thanks to Him Who made
Morning light and evening shade;
Source and Giver of all good,
Nightly sleep and daily food;
Quickener of our wearied powers;
Guard of our unconscious hours.
2O give thanks to Nature’s King,
Who made every breathing thing;
His, our warm and sentient frame,
His, the mind’s immortal flame.
O how close the ties that bind
Spirits to the Eternal Mind!
3O give thanks with heart and lip,
For we are His workmanship;
And all creatures are His care:
Not a bird that cleaves the air
Fails unnoticed; but who can
Speak the Father’s love to man?
4O give thanks to Him Who came
In a mortal, suffering frame–
Temple of the deity–
Came for rebel man to die;
In the path Himself hath trod,
Leading back His saints to God.
