Happy Thanksgiving

A Thanksgiving prayer of Thanks

I’m thankful, Lord, for joys
You’ve given through this year.
They’ve brightened every moment
And brought me so much cheer.

They’ve given me a picture
Of your great, deep love
And your tender watch care
From Heaven above.

I’m thankful, Lord, for trials,
Painful though they be,
Brought me closer to your side,
And helped me to see

Just how much I need you,
In every moment of each day
To gently lead me onwards
In your chosen way.

I’m thankful, Lord, for all you’ve done
To keep me through this year.
I’m thankful for the blessings,
And for your presence near.
