Give Thee Thanks

With heavenly hosts,
and angelic ranks,
We lift our hearts,
and give Thee thanks.

Until that bright,
and glorious day,
when temporal life,
finds eternal array,

When over we cross,
Jordan’s river banks,
still we praise,
and give Thee thanks.

A Ready Heart

“Would you know who is the greatest saint in the world?  It is not he who prays the most or fasts the most, it is not he who lives the most, but it is he who is always thankful to God, who receives everything as an instance of God’s goodness and has a heart always ready to praise God for it.”

~ William Law (1686-1761)
