A Thanksgiving Poem

Let us give thanks to God above,

Thanks for expressions of His love,

Seen in the book of nature, grand

Taught by His love on every hand.

Let us be thankful in our hearts,

Thankful for all the truth imparts,

For the religion of our Lord,

All that is taught us in His word.

Let us be thankful for a land,

That will for such religion stand’

One that protects it by the law,

One that before it stand in awe.

Thankful for all things let us be,

Though there be woes and misery;

Lessons they bring us for our good-

Later ’twill all be understood.

Thankful for peace o’er land and sea,

Thankful for signs of liberty,

Thankful for homes, for life and health,

Pleasure and plenty, fame and wealth.

Thankful for friends and loved ones, too

Thankful for all things, good and true,

Thankful for harvest in the fall,

Thankful to Him who gave it all.

    What a great poem! So blessed to come across it this morning. We have SO much to be thankful for and so often we take those blessings for granted or lose sight of them. It is so important to recognize our blessings and be thankful to God for them. Awesome!
