    Lyrics and Music: Seth and Bessie Sykes

    Some thank the Lord for friends and home
    For mercies sure and sweet
    But I would praise Him for his grace
    In prayer I would repeat

    Refrain:
    Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul
    Thank you, Lord, for making me whole
    Thank you, Lord, for giving to me
    Thy great salvation so rich and free

    Some thank Him for the flow’rs that grow
    Some for the stars that shine
    My heart is filled with joy and praise
    Because I know He’s mine

    I trust in Him from day to day
    I prove His saving grace
    I’ll sing this song of praise to Him
    Until I see His face

    Lyrics: August Ludvig Storm | Music:  John Alfred Hultman

    Thanks, O God, for boundless mercy
    From Thy gracious throne above
    Thanks for ev’ry need provided
    From the fullness of Thy love
    Thanks for daily toil and labour
    And for rest when shadows fall
    Thanks for love of friend and neighbour
    And Thy goodness unto all

    Thanks for thorns as well as roses
    Thanks for weakness and for health
    Thanks for clouds as well as sunshine
    Thanks for poverty and wealth!
    Thanks for pain as well as pleasure
    All Thou sendest day by day
    And Thy Word our dearest treasure
    Shedding light upon our way

    Thanks, O God, for home and fireside
    Where we share our daily bread
    Thanks for hours of sweet communion
    When by Thee our souls are fed!
    Thanks for grace in time of sorrow
    And for joy and peace in Thee
    Thanks for hope today, tomorrow
    And for all eternity!

    “Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor…”
