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.
