“Thanksgiving”

Thanksgiving is a very special day,
The heritage our Pilgrim fathers gave;
The right to worship…each in his own way,
The strength of faith…that made the humble brave.

Thanksgiving is a day when we express
Our gratitude to God for Harvest wealth;
And for the many things that we possess…
Our homes, our friends, our happiness and health.

Thanksgiving is a day that calls us home,
Though home may be beyond the zones of time.
We hear the call…no matter where we roam,
And all our memories become sublime.

Dear God…we thank Thee for the things we share,
May all Thy wondrous blessings never cease.
We thank Thee for Thy tender love and care,
And for this land…where we can live in peace.
