My Prayer Of Thanks - Poem by Dr. Rebecca Batts Butler

"One day when I from slumber deep
To see the sunlight sweet
I say to him who brought me through
Thanks, God, for the wonders that you do." "Thanks for the luxury of another day,
I live and follow in thine own way,
Do some good whenever I can
Help and serve my fellow man." "And when again I see the setting sun
And all my earthly work is done
As I fall asleep in thy dear arms
Content, secure, and safe from harm."
