DT Lyrics:



Subject: Lyr Add: Thank you for giving me this morning
From: bradfordian
Date: 11 Mar 06 - 01:18 PM

"Thank you for giving me this morning,
thank you for giving me this day,
Thank you, for every new day dawning,
I'll be thanking you"

Just came into my head out of the blue. It's from my primary school days circa 1955, so I guess its school/hymn. That's the chorus, anyone know the rest of the lyrics?
And, yeah,I reckon I have reason to be thankful!
Cheers Brad.

Also sang this at School.
Think the second verse begins "Thank you I have my occupation..."
Will try to remember the rest.

Cheating slightly I know but googling the opening line of this Hymn
gives 85 online sources for the lyrics.

Hmmmm. I wonder if it's related to the one I used to sing in the sixties with the Catholic Youth Organization:

    Thank you for every bright new morning,
    Thank you for every break of day....
    da dum, da dum, da dum, etc.


    Thank you that we have heard your word, Lord
    Thank you for every kindness shown.
    Thank you ......we can't be alone.

    ...Thank you for every cool shade tree.
    Thank you that fathered by you
    Truly sons of God are we.




That's all that comes back just now. The rest will come back at midnight. I didn't really like the song back then, but we sang it a lot.
-Joe-
I suppose the song that comes closest to the one requested is this. It has the same metrical pattern as the song I know, so I'm imagining they're related..

THANK YOU.

Thank you for giving me this morning
Thank you for every day that's new.
Thank you that I can know my worries
Can be cost to you.

Thank you for all my friends and
 brothers,
Thank you for all the men that live,
Thank you for even greatest enemies
That I can forgive.

Thank you I have my occupation,
Thank you for every pleasure small,
Thank you for music, light and
 gladness,
Thank you for them all.

Thank you for many little sorrows,
Thank you for every kindly word,
Thank you that everywhere your
 guidance
Reaches every land.

Thank you I see your word has meaning,
Thank you, I know your spirits here
Thank you because you love all people,
Those both far and near.

Thank you, Oh lord you spoke unto us,
Thank you, that for our words you care,
Thank you, Oh lord you came amongst us
Bread and wine to share.

Thank you, Oh lord your love is
 boundless,
Thank you that I am full of you,
Thank you, you made me feel so glad
And thankful as I do.

Thanks guys. I'm not convinced its the version I remember but yes very similar. I'll see if it rings any bells with any Brit 'catters.
Any retired school music teachers (UK) around?

Thankyou for giving me this morning, said Andrew Strauss as the ball shot off his bat onto his foot up his pad and into the waiting hands of the Indian fielder.

Was it by any chance

Thank you for the summer morning

Bradfordian, I seem to remember that from a recording by Petula Clarke rather than as a hymn at school, but the old memory could be playing trick on me.

Hmmmm. I Googled up that Petula Clark LP, but I couldn't find online lyrics or recording. Is there anyone here who would admit to having a vast collection of Petula Clark LP's, who could transcribe her version for us?



I'm still looking for somebody who knows my "thank you for every bright new morning" song, so I can figure out if it's basically the same song.

THANK YOU FOR LOVING ME was apparently written by Tony Hatch & Jackie Trent, who wrote many songs for Petula. But according to the Tony Hatch website, it was they, not she, who recorded it. My bad.

Martin Gotthard Schneider is noted as the composer and the lyricist of the German version, which therefore can be assumed to be the original one.

The German text starts "Danke für diesen guten Morgen". See Ingeb.org.

The song is known in many languages and denominations.

The version sung by Petula Clark quoted above laudably strives to follow the original rhyme scheme. Yes, "morning - dawning" is not the peak of poetic inspiration, and "give me" will rhyme with "with me" in even smaller an area of England ;-).

The verse contributed by GUEST 25 Nov 10 - 03:57 PM definitely merits some polish. First draft:
Thank you for every note of music,
Thank you for every song I sing;
Thank you yea even for the blues ec-
cept for B. B. King.
