“Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.”
~ A THANKSGIVING PRAYER ~
As friends and family gather around
This Thanksgiving may our hearts abound
With love and laughter and the gifts of the heart
For another year God did impart.
Whether heartache or heartbreak, whatever befell
In sorrow or joy we remember this well
That God in His infinite mercy and grace
Has brought us together once again on this day.
May we always be thankful for the good and the bad
For times in good health and times we were sad
Whether rich or poor may we open our door
To the unloved, unlovely, hopeless and frail
God grant us love to all who hover near.
Let us always be humbled by the gift of God’s Son
For each brand new day He has granted us
In each moment, each hour, may we never forget
To soak in Thanksgiving brings the greatest of gifts.
