Ralph Waldo Emerson
For Flowers that bloom about our feet
For tender grass, so fresh so sweet
For song bird, and hum of bee
For all things fair we hear or see
Father in Heaven, we thank Thee
For blue of stream and blue of sky
For pleasant shade of branches high
For fragrant air and coolling breeze
For beauty of the blooming trees,
Father in Heaven, we thank Thee!
"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful."
