THINK OF A WORLD WITHOUT ANY FLOWERS

THINK OF A WORLD WITHOUT ANY FLOWERS

Think of a world
without any flowers,
think of a world
without any trees,
think if a sky
without any sunshine,
think of the air
without any breeze.
We thank you Lord,
for flowers and trees and sunshine,
we thank you, Lord,
and praise your holy name.

2.
Think of a world
without any animals,
think of a field
without any herd,
think of a stream
without any fishes,
think of a dawn
without any bird.
We thank you, Lord,
for all your living creatures,
we thank you, Lord,
and praise your holy name.

3.
Think of a world
without any people,
think of a street
with no-one living there,
think of a town
without any houses,
no-one to love
and nobody to care.
We thank you Lord,
for families and friendships,
we thank you, Lord,
and praise your holy name.

Doreen Newport (b. 1927)

‘Think of a dawn without any bird’.  It is nearly impossible isn’t it?

This was one of the Hymns we sang at the Harvest Festival.  Harvest Festivals celebrate and give thanks to the harvest being brought in and for the fact that we have food to eat.

    Great song to help school children feel grateful for the world around them. Should be sung in all schools!!!

    Thank you Rose. I think it’s a lovely song. It sounded angelic when I heard it sung in Church by the school children

    We are having a village fayre soon and it is held in the Church grounds. It will be a lovely afternoon with the Church looking down on us! I think we take Churches for granted.
