Thankful Heart

Thankful Heart


With a thankful heart, with an endless joy
With a growing family, every girl and boy
Will be nephew and niece to me (Nephew and niece to me)
Will bring love, hope, and peace to me (Love, hope, and peace to me)
Yes, and every night will end and every day will start-
-with a grateful prayer and a thankful heart

With an open smile and with open doors
I will bid you welcome. What is mine is yours
With a glass raised to toast your health (With a glass raised to toast your health)
And a promise to share the wealth (Promise to share the wealth)
I will sail a friendly course, file a friendly chart
On a sea of love and a thankful heart

Life is like a journey. Who knows when it ends?
Yes, and if you need to know the measure of a man
You simply count his friends
Stop and look around you. The glory that you see
Is born again each day. Don't let it slip away
How precious life can be

With an open heart that is wide awake
I will make this promise: Every breath I take
Will be used now to sing your praise (Used now to sing your praise)
And to thank you to share my days (Thank you to share my days)
With a loving guarantee that even if we part-
-I will hold you close with a thankful heart

I will hold you close with a thankful heart

Thankful Heart
