Grant me, Lord, a grateful heart
And unshadowed eyes to see with,
The many blessings, great and small
That You have favored me with.
Let me ever mindful be
Of that which I take for granted.
Instead of yearning for what I have not,
Let me gracefully bloom where planted.
Rather than facing each new day
With longing wants unheeded,
Let my heart rejoice and know
That I have all that's needed.
So when Life''s troubles heavy seem,
When my spirit grows so weary,
Let a grateful heart supply the strength
To trust You are ever near me.
