All good gifts around us

Are sent from Heaven above

So, thank the Lord, oh, thank the Lord for all his love.


We thank thee then, O Father, for all things bright and good,

The seedtime and the harvest, our life our health our food,

No gifts have we to offer for all thy love imparts

But that which thou desirest, our humble thankful hearts!


CHORUS:  [these words are the canticle sung over the final chorus:]

I really want to thank you, Lord!

I want to thank you, Lord, thank you for all of your love!

I want to thank you, Lord!

I want to thank you, Lord, thank you, Lord!


Am   C   G   D   E/D   Gm/D   D
