Thank you for this precious day
My heart so full of love for you
Oh sing for every mother's child
Oh sing for all the stars above

The ones without a home
A city street alone
Are they not you and I
And they this sacrifice
Or are they just like falling leaves
From dust to dust from seed to shear
If I could have one wish on Earth
It would be to see another spring

These gifts you give to me
Sings praise for all I see
For every childhood tear
The peace beyond all fear
