Poem by Ethel Wasgatt Dennis
Hymn 3


A grateful heart a garden is, 
Where there is always room
For every lovely, Godlike grace
To come to perfect bloom.


A grateful heart a fortress is,
A staunch and rugged tower,
Where God's omnipotence revealed,
Girds man with mighty power.


A grateful heart a temple is,
A shrine so pure and white,
Where angels of His presence keep 
Calm watch by day or night.


Grant then, dear Father-Mother, God,
Whatever else befall,
This largess of a grateful heart 
That loves and blesses all.
