Did I say Thank You God today
For all the joys along life's way
For morning freshness just at dawn
The lingering dark of nighttime gone,
Did I remember in a prayer
To thank you just for being there,
For leading me through trials and fears
And lending smiles in place of tears.
Did I remember God today
In such a very kindly way,
For hope and faith and trust and love
The knowledge that He rules above,
This whole wide world with beauties grand
The guidance of His sacred hand,
The little things that mean so much
A baby's smile, a mother's touch.
Dear God, and did you hear me say
I thank You in a special way.
Not just for worldly things, you see
But for the love You've given me,
A peace of mind, a joy supreme
A soul to yearn, a heart to dream,
The quiet beauty so sublime
That satisfies this heart of mine.
Did I say 'Thank You' soft and sweet
For laughter real and joys complete
And did I kneel in quiet prayer
To thank You for this life so fair,
With all its beauties far and wide
The glories of the country side,
My heart is filled with untold love
I thank You, Gracious One, above.

Has this beautiful thank you poem inspired you to find more poetic thank you wording examples? One of the most moving thank you poems I have read is by American writer of religious and inspirational poetry, Helen Steiner Rice whose books of poetry have sold nearly 7 million copies and who is also known as America's inspirational poet laureate.
Thank you, God, for everything,
The big things and the small.
For 'every good gift comes from God'...
The giver of them all.
And all too often we accept, without any thanks or praise,
The gifts God sends as blessings, each day in many ways.
And so at this Thanksgiving Time, we offer up a prayer...
To thank you, God, for giving us a lot more than our share.
First, thank you for the little things
That often come our way,
The things we take for granted
But don't mention when we pray,
The unexpected courtesy, the thoughtful, kindly deed,
A hand reached out to help us in the time of sudden need.
Oh, make us more aware, dear God, of little daily graces
That come to us with 'sweet surprise'
From never-dreamed-of places.
Then, thank you for the 'Miracles'
We are much too blind to see,
And give us new awareness of our many gifts from Thee,
And help us to remember that the Key of Life and Living
Is to make each prayer a Prayer of Thanks
And every day Thanksgiving
