We thank Thee, Lord, for life and breath,
Provided us so free;
For at Thy hand we live and moveó
Our all must come from Thee.
We thank Thee, blessed Master,
With mortal tongue below;
But when we gain that heavínly plane,
Eternal thanks shall flow.
- For food, dear Lord, we raise to Thee
Our song of thankful praiseó
For giving us that living bread
Which gladdens all our days.
- We thank Thee, Lord, for raiment, too,
For slumber in the night,
For clothing our immortal souls
In shining robes of white.
- We thank Thee, Lord, for Thy dear Son,
For Thy unfailing grace;
We thank Thee for the hope to see
Our Savior face to face.
