Thankfulness

Caroline Woolmer Leakey
1827 - 1881 Großbritannien / Australien


Thankfulness

OH, crowning mercy of all blessings poured
With lavish hand from Love's unminished fount!
Oh, blessing best! (without thee, no account
Were all good things in heaven's high-treasury stored,)
A thankful heart, which takes - and God adored -
The smallest daily boon as from above;
A new sweet pledge of undeserved love,
Requiteless, save from Gratitude's full hoard.
Whate'er Thou dost, O Lord, from me refrain
Of what the world calls good, withdraw not this, -
A grateful heart, which all alone is bliss;
A rich possessing, - without which are vain
All things possessed. A thankful soul finds wing
To soar upon the storm, and sweetest sing.
