Father, as we bow before Thee,
please hear us as we pray.
We ask Thee for thy blessing
on this thanksgiving day.
We thank Thee for daily bread;
for this table before us spread;
For family and friends who gather here,
we ask Thee to be very near.
We thank Thee for the sun and rain,
and for this harvest of golden grain;
For strength to till Thy fertile land,
for mighty trees, like sentinels stand.
We have wonderous visions, Father,
builder of all creation,
Of a land that stretches far beyond,
Help us build a mighty nation.
May we ever look to Thee, Father,
as our Ruler in every way,
And may we ever keep in our hearts,
the spirit of this thanksgiving day.
