“In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18


A grateful heart may I have,

For many are the reasons

To give thanks and praise

Amidst the turning seasons.


A celebration of Thanks

We enjoy each November;

Yet of God’s countless gifts

Let us always remember.


The gifts of birds and flowers,

The gifts of stars and sky,

The gifts of oceans and streams,

The gift of the sun on high.


The gift of life itself

And the many days we live;

The gift of eternal life we know,

His life for us Christ did give.


The gift of communing with God

Through praise and prayer,

The gift of being His children:

All are gifts beyond compare.


The gift of God’s infinite love,

Ever true, wide and deep,

The gift of God’s Word

And Promises He does keep.


So let us give thanks

Today and all our tomorrows;

Let us rejoice always in God,

Releasing to Him our sorrows.


Let us join together joyfully

With friends and family dear;

Thankful to God and each other

For blessings year to year.


Yea, grateful hearts may we have,

For many are the reasons

To give thanks and praise

Amidst the turning seasons.
