I have much to thank you for:
For the beauty of the earth;
For the loveliness of living
And the mystery of birth.
But today I sing of one great gift
That you have given more,
A gift I know that long ago
I should have thanked you for:

Thank you for America,
For the gift of being free;
For being born a child
Of this land of liberty;
For the privilege of power,
And the joy of dignity,
And the pleasure of abundance,
And the dream of what might be.

I have much to thank you for:
For the gift of loving you;
For my faith and your commandments,
That guide all that I do.
But today I sing of one great gift
That you have given more,
A gift I know that long ago
I should have thanked you for:

Thank you for America . . . etc.

I have much to thank you for:
For my children and my wife;
For those I love, and those who love me
Through this fleeting life.
But today I sing of one great gift
That you have given more,
A gift I know that long ago
I should have thanked you for:

Thank you for America . . . etc.
