I Give Thanks

I give thanks to You my Heavenly Father
You’ve given me such good things
I give You all my thanks

For seals and squids
And great blue whales
For slugs and spiders
And a bucket of snales
I give You thanks
For all that You’ve made
The wonders of creation
Everywhere displayed

Prunes and pizza
Stir-fry, stew
Chocolate and jelly
All come from You
You feed me, You clothe me
Watch over my sleep
‘Cause You are my shepherd
And I am Your sheep

Father God
In heaven above
You’re holy and just
With amazing love
You’re merciful and kind
And You love to forgive
Being Your child
Is the only way to live
