For All These Daily Things

(a daily prayer)

For all the beauty of Earth
and all the kindness therein
For life and death and birth
and the hope of common men
For joy and love everywhere
and good graces every day
For all those who are fair
and every one shown the way
For compassion without strings
and freedom, and so much more
For all these daily things
I thank thee, Lord, daily for
