We give thanks to you, O God;
we give thanks, for your name is near.
We recount your wondrous deeds.
From The Treasury of David:
As the smiling flowers gratefully reflect in their lovely colours the various constituents of the solar ray, so should gratitude spring up in our hearts after the smiles of God’s providence. Unto thee do we give thanks. We should praise God again and again. Stinted gratitude is ingratitude. For infinite goodness there should be measureless thanks.
—Charles H Spurgeon
