Gratitude


Gratitude is not only the memory
But the homage of the heart
Rendered to God for his goodness

Gratitude to God
Makes even a temporal blessing
A taste of heaven

The root of joy is great fullness
It is not joy that makes us grateful
It is gratitude that makes us joyful

Let never day or night
Unholled pass by
Still remember what the Lord has done

Gratitude should be as habitual
As the reception of mercy is constant
As ardent as the number of them is great
As devout as the riches of divine grace
And goodness incomprehensible

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
