O Lord, accept our songs
of praise for all your gifts to us
as we continue to live in this
Today the temperature is 50º on our balcony,
but our apartment is warm and toasty.
We praise you and give thanks
for those who have provided
for our health and comfort.
Praise for continuing friendships
and new friends.
Praise for good and ample food,
and opportunities for helping others.
Praise and thanks for those who plan
and conduct our religious services.
Praise and thanks to you, Lord,
for the wonder of your love. Amen.
Praise the Lord! How good it is to sing praises to our God; for he is gracious, and a song of praise is fitting.
Hymn: Praise to the Lord, the Almighty
