Thank you God for the beauty,
You bedecked this wonderful world,
For the beauty of nature,
And its mysteries you unfurled.
For all the beautiful landscapes,
For the blueness of the skies,
For the many tiny insects,
The bees and butterflies,
Thank you for the sun,
That bathes our world with light,
Thank you for the moon,
That lights our way at night.
Thank you for the birds,
That fills our world with sound,
And for the animal kingdom,
That brings joy to all around.
Thank you for the air we breathe,
The water and the seas,
Thank you for the beautiful flowers,
The rain and gentle breeze.
Thank you for life itself,
To experience these wonderful things,
To be part of your glorious Kingdom,
And all the gifts that it brings.
