Thanksgiving Hymn

Thank you for our mountains, their peaks so tall and fair 
Thank you for our prairies, their dusty golden air 
Thank you for our waters, the rivers, lakes and streams 
Thank you for our smoothing sands and for the deep blue sea 

Thank you for our forests, the maples pines and more 
Oaks and birches tower above the mossy floor 
Thank you for our tundras, those lichens clinging long 
The rain, the snow, the lightning bolts, that shine from heav'n above 

Thank you for our cities, those points of metal gleam 
Thank you for our railroads; electric, diesel, steam 
Thank you for our airplanes; those grand jetliners soar 
The thinking, dreaming, weighing mind; creating ever more 

Thank you for our bounty: our veggies and our meats 
All the living creatures; our friends and noble feast 
Thank you for our laughter, our tears and furrowed brows 
Thank you for the strength to love, the courage to know how
