[Written for the Sentinel]


I thank Thee, Father, for Thy truth
That teaches us of heaven within;
That makes us pure and brave and strong,
And frees us from the grasp of sin.

I thank Thee, Father, for Thy light
That guides us e'en in darkest hour;
Turning the long night into day,
Revealing to us Thine All-power.

I thank Thee, Father, for Thy love
That heals all ills, all grief, all pain;
That gives us courage to press on
When every effort seems in vain.

I thank Thee, Father, for the joy
I know when I have done Thy will;
And for Thy word, so clear, so true,
That says to error, Peace, be still.
