Thank God for Little Things!
Thank you God for the little things
That often comes our way.
The things we take for granted
But don't mention when we pray!
The unexpected courtesy,
The thoughtful, kindly deed –
A hand reached out to help us
In the time of sudden need –
Oh make us more aware, dear God
Of little daily graces.
That comes to us with "sweet surprise"
From never – dreamed – of places.
