Thankful Birds or Chirp, Chirp, Chirp, Chirping

This morning before the sun came up,
It wasn’t even day light
I woke to birds chirping.
Chirp, Chirp, Chirp, Chirping
Thanking God for food
Soon to be supplied.


As I lay there dozing in prayer
I also thanked God for my supply
Doze, Doze, Doze, Dozing.
Thanking God for food
Soon to be supplied.


The birds knew who to thank
They started early chirping
Before break of day.
Chirp, Chirp, Chirp, Chirping
Their thanks to God,
Chirp, Chirp, Chirp, Chirping


This morning as the sun soon rose
So I did after the break of day.
At the window there I stood
I saw them flitting and hopping
Those chirping birds searching for their supply.
Fliting and hopping, those thankful birds.


As I sat down to my table spread
I knew who to thank.
I had started early
Before the break of day
Thanking, Thanking, Thanking
Giving my thanks to God.


This was the day the Lord had made
Given to rejoice and be glad in.
This was the day given for work or play
Provided for rejoicing and thanking.


As I sat out in the cool of the evening
Again to my ears it came. Chirping.
Chirp, Chirp, Chirp, Chirping.
Before they nested down, birds
Satisfied at the end of the day
Chirp, Chirp, Chirp, Chirping
Their thanks to God.
Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirping.


Soon after as nighttime fell
As I retired to my bed provided
It came to my mind again.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you,
Thank you, God for the birds
Who remind me to thank You.
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.
