a Thanksgiving prayer

a thanksgiving prayer

For forests tall and oceans deep 
For canyons wide and mountains steep 
For sunset skies of pink and gold 
For every sunrise we behold
For Winter's snow and springtime's thaw 
For Summer's warmth and Autumn's awe 
For roofs that keep the rain away 
For walls that hold it all at bay

For work that puts food on the table 
For health and rest to keep us able 
For friends and family around us 
For years to come, may they surround us

For soldiers fighting for our peace 
For days to come when wars may cease 
For hope, so burdens won't enslave us 
For thy forgiveness which will save us

For feast, and those with whom we share it 
For loving hands that did prepare it 
For all that makes this life worth living 
We take this time on this Thanksgiving

To bow our heads and bend a knee 
And pause to look around and see 
For all that was, is, and shall be 
We have none to thank, Oh Lord, but thee.
