As a Nation, and a people we set aside this day,
To give God our thanks and praise.
Families gather to prepare
A bountiful table share.
We give thanks for all God does in our life,
To cause us joy and inner delight.
With eyes to see and with a heart free,
Help us Lord to pray for and assist another in need.
Give us ears to hear the silent cry,
Of those who have a heart that sighs.
To our Nation send a revival sound,
That pulls from evil to higher ground.
As we celebrate the goodness bestowed,
And as realization of our many blessings unfold,
Allow our heart to sing clear,
A love song only You can hear.
I give thanks for Your love so sure and true.
On this day and in every day all glory belongs to You.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
