Praise for Abundant Blessings

Gracious donor of our days, you lend joy to all the living;

you hold nothing back from the ones you love!

Like a spendthrift giddy with gold, you bring hundred-fold harvests from a single seed.

You open hidden streams, and dry lands bloom.

You make sweet bread in heaven, and rain it down.

You bend trees to the ground,                                                                                   and tiny children eat the season’s fruit.

Our eager hands are cupped around your blessings; our laps are heavy with gifts from you!

Praise, honor and thanks from everything you made, from everything that is yours, now and forever; forever and a day!
