Ep 33 A Song Blessing of Gratitude for Thanksgiving

Nov, 22, 2017

Welcome to Episode 33 of the April Eight Songs & Stories Podcast. Today’s song is one of gratitude to celebrate Thanksgiving Day in the United States. April Eight is great for your kids at while you are making dinner, at bathtime, bedtime, car time, and family time.

I learned this song from a Norwegian farmer named, Benta, who lives up in Wisconsin. She also taught me how to milk sheep and goats which was wonderful.


It goes like this:

Bread is a lovely thing to eat,

God Bless the barley and the wheat,

a lovely thing to breath this air,

God bless the sunshine everywhere,

The Earth is a lovely place to know

God bless the folks that come and go

Alive is a lovely thing to be

Giver of life, we say thanks to thee.
