All the Blessings of the Year

For all the blessings of the year,
For all the friends we hold so dear,
For peace on earth, both far and near,
We thank Thee, Lord.

For life and health, those common things,
Which every day and hour brings,
For home, where our affection clings,
We thank Thee, Lord.

For love of Thine, which never tires,
Which all our better thought inspires,
And warms our lives with heavenly fires,
We thank Thee, Lord.

For All the Blessings of the Year
Albert Hutchinson, 1913

Have a blessed day friends.

Vee said... feels just like a day for warm greetings! I have always loved that graphic of the little boy riding the turkey. Must look and see if I have already snagged it. Would you believe that I forget what is on my own boards? Have a warm and relaxing day...
