Oh Gratitude and Thanksgiving

Oh gratitude and thanksgiving

Oh gratitude and thanksgiving

The things I could say about you

So much light you bring into each moment

So much love you help us encounter

The bright side

The silver lining

Life without you would be grey and gloomy


On Thanksgiving Day, we acknowledge you more than usual

Remembering that you can always be found

Found in the quiet

Found in the lonely place

Found


I'm grateful for a lot indeed

I'm grateful for so much that today,

I hurt for those in need

Must I never forget my privilege

Privilege to have choice, how I will spend my day

Privilege to wake up

Healthy, alive and well


Oh gratitude and thanksgiving

I welcome you here

Appreciating you amidst feasts and family

Welcoming your presence and delighting in the Lord

Thanksgiving is here

But I thank you, for I know you are always near
