Thanksgiving is here, another year
I give thanks to the Lord for my life
for my family and friends so dear.
I thank Him for His peace, no strife
As I get closer to Him, He is near.
Thanksgiving is time to just reflect
on past accomplishments and plans
for the years’ growth, every aspect.
I’m thankful He has made me stand
in faith and love, is what He expects.
Oh, Lord, grant us peace and mercy
at this time we call “Thanksgiving”.
Help us to remember and to foresee
Your goodness in all of our living.
Forgive us our sins. They are many.
As we gather around bountiful tables
Help us not forget the needy, the poor,
from the old and those in their cradles
that might come to knock on our door.
Help us Lord to give as we are able.
