“I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.”
—e. e. cummings

We thank Thee each morning for a new born day
Where we may work the fields of new mown hay
We thank Thee for the sunshine and the air that we breathe oh Lord we thank Thee
Thank Thee for the rivers that run all day
Thank Thee for the little birds that sing along the way
Thank Thee for the trees and the deep blue sea oh Lord we thank Thee
Oh yes we thank Thee Lord for every flower that blooms
Birds that sing fish that swim and the light of the moon
We thank Thee every day as we kneel and pray
That we were born with eyes to see these things
Thank Thee for the fields where the clover is grown
Thank Thee for the pastures where cattle may roam
Thank Thee for Thy love so pure and free oh Lord we thank Thee
Oh yes we thank Thee Lord…

I like this gospel song about thanksgiving for a new born day, for the sunshine and the air we breathe, for the rivers that run all day, for the little birds that sing along the way, for the trees and the deep blue sea, fish that sing and the light of the moon, that we were born with eyes to see these things, for every flower that blooms, the fields and the pastures, and for the Love of the divine/spirit/universe. It reminds me of this verse “the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness”. Yes, the divine love of God/universe/spirit is ever present with us and for us, and like the quote by e.e. cummings says, God/Divine Love makes our day amazing with everything “which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes”. I am uplifted by this inspiring quote and song.
