Come within the gates giving thanks,
To his courts singing praise,
Give thanks to him and bless his name.
For the sparkle in the eyes of loved ones
For the touch of a friendly hand
For the bread we eat
For the plentiful stars
For the roar of the breakers
For the Holy Word you have spoken to us
For the chance to be and to do
We thank you O Lord, our God.
