Thank God for Dirty Dishes
Thank God for dirty dishes, for they have a tale to tell,
While others may go hungry, we have eaten very well;
With, home, health, and happiness, why should I ever fuss,
For by the stack of dirty dishes, God’s been good to us.
You have given us our families, health, and nice cozy beds,
Our friends, our freedom, and a good roof over our heads;
You have given us eyes to see, ears to hear and a mouth to talk,
Wonderful places to go, things to see, and even our legs to walk;
You have given us the food we eat and the clothes that we wear,
You have blessed us with water to drink, and given us fresh air.
You give us liberty at home and protect our soldiers abroad,
We know these freedoms only come from an omnipotent God;
We may not own an expensive car or a new house in the suburbs,
But we have forgiveness of sins and the promises of Your words;
We have the hope of eternal life and of a mansion above,
And we have Your abiding presence and of Your unending love;
And as we all gather today in this home and special place,
We thank You for every blessing, and for Your unending grace.
God, please bless this food that You have so graciously provided,
And please bless each and every person that has been invited;
Dear Heavenly Father, You have blessed us beyond all measure,
And most of all through giving Your Son, life’s greatest treasure;
For this and more, we give You our highest praise and thanksgiving.
