A prayer of thanks

Thanksgiving

by sandy montgomery

We give thee thanks for those we love
For earth below and sky above
We give thee thanks for solitude
For solace when the world is rude

We thank thee Lord for home and hearth
For sending thy son to the earth
For peace, and love, and joy, and tears
Thank you Lord for calming my fears

Thank you Lord for each tomorrow
Friends who share in joy or sorrow
Thank you too for your tender care
Enough for us to have and share

Thank you for those who share a while
In our triumph or in our trial
Thank you Lord for being steady
For saving us when we're ready

For your virtue we thank thee God
For leading us with staff and rod
We thank thee for your constant love
All that is good comes from above

Thank you for freedom, for this land
Each gift sampled fresh from thy hand
Thank you for life I say again
In Jesus name I pray amen
