I thank the Lord every day
When I open my eyes
I know He is responsible
For the land and sea and skies

I thank Him for another day
To be lived here on earth
I thank Him for allowing me
To live well past my birth

I thank Him for the open fields
And meadows filled with flowers
I know it's all His doing
For He has the ultimate power

I thank Him for the beauty
That surrounds me every day
For I know if He wanted to
He could take it all away

I thank Him for a star filled sky
With a harvest moon so bright
For I know He's the only one
Who could have gotten it all so right

But most of all I thank Him
For all life has given me
For I know deep in my heart
Without Him I wouldn't be.
