Thank You for this precious day
These gifts You give to me
My heart so full of love for You
Sings praise for all I see

Oh, sing for every mother's love
For every childhood tear
Oh, sing for all the stars above
The peace beyond all fear

This is for The Refugees
The ones without a home
A boat out on the ocean
A city street alone

Are they not some dear mother's child?
Are they not you and I?
Are we the ones to bear this shame
And they this sacrifice?

Or are they just like falling leaves
Who give themselves away?
From dust to dust, from seed to shear
And to another day

If I could have one wish on Earth
Of all I can conceive
T'would be to see another spring
And bless the falling leaves

Thank You for this precious day
These gifts You give to me
My heart so full of love for You
Sings praise for all I see

Oh, sing for every mothers love
For every childhood tear
Oh, sing for all the stars above
The peace beyond all fear
Oh, sing for all the stars above
The peace beyond all fear
