  • Poem - we praise you

    The Poet Laureate of Community is out of her cage!

    This is a poem I wrote in 2012 while on my daily walk. Recently a man in our church who plays guitar and sings wrote some music for it and has sung it several times in church and at church functions. I hope you like it.

    We Praise You

    We praise You for the sunshine
    We praise You for the rain
    We praise You for the good earth
    We praise You again and again.

    We praise You for all creatures
    Be they great or small
    For loving us our dear Father
    We praise You most of all

    We praise You in the good times
    We seek You in times of strife
    We praise You for our salvation
    We praise You for giving us life

    We will never be worthy, Lord
    You saved our soul, new life was begun
    Let us forever praise and thank You
    The Spirit, the Father, the Son

    We thank you for this table
    and for the bounty we share
    for the friends here assembled
    heads bowed in prayer.

    We will always be thankful
    for the many things You have done
    Let us forever praise You
    Father, Spirit and Son.

    Whether you think you can or think you can''re right.

      This is such a wonderful poem, thank you for sharing it with us. Each day, we have so many things to be grateful for.

      Today is the FIRST day of the REST of your life...what will YOU make of it?
