PRAISE TO GOD

 

Praise to Thee be given

From my mouth, Oh God.

Praise for things thought common,

Praise for things quite odd,

Praise for things thought small,

Praise for some items so big.

Praise for the bundle called “all,”

The sheep, the chicken, the cow, the pig.

Love unbounded, wonderful, deep and strong.
