A Small Thanks

I thank Thee for the temporal blessings of this world—
the refreshing air, 
the light of the sun, 

the food that renews strength, 
the raiment that clothes, 
the dwelling that shelters, 
the sleep that gives rest, 

the starry canopy of night, 
the summer breeze, 
the flowers' sweetness, 
the music of flowing streams, 
the happy endearments of family, kindred, friends. 

Suffer me not to be insensible to these daily mercies. 

~From The Valley of Vision - Evening Praise
