The Important Things

My heart is oh so thankful
for what God gives to me;
Hot water, food and shelter,
and clothes to cover me.

He gives me friends that are the best -
to keep my spirit bright;
No one should have to walk alone -
not when He has such light.

God gives to me all Nature -
the beauty of the trees;
the changing skies, both day and night,
the pleasure of a breeze.

I see the many-coloured flowers;
hear birds give forth their song;
And watch the children laugh with glee
as puppies tumble along.

Simple pleasures I hold dear -
I have no need for more;
God gives to me the important things
from his vast and Heavenly store.

He counts me as one of his flock -
my heart belongs to Him;
He takes the doubt, loneliness and fear
and gives to me a hymn..

My heart is oh so thankful
for what God gives to me;
His Light, His Love, His Healing -
and just because I’m me.
