1.  Praise to God for things we see,

the growing flower, the waving tree,

Our mother’s face, the bright blue sky

where birds and clouds go floating by;

praise to God for seeing.

2.  Praise to God for things we hear,

for sounds of friends who laugh and cheer,

the merry bells, the song of birds,

for stories, tunes, and kindly words;

praise to God for hearing.
