Thank you, God, for food to eat,
For folks we love, for friends we meet.
Thank you for the autumn trees,
Chrysanthemums and goose-drawn vees.
Thank you for this happy place,
And thank you most of all for grace
Through him who died and rose again
And now forever lives to save. Amen.
Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His faithful love endures forever.
--1 Chronicles 16:34 HCSB
