Thanksgiving

O thank the Lord this autumn day

For ev’ry blessing in my way

For ev’ry gen’rous gift of mine

My gratitudes and thanks all shine

My thanks for ev’ry ounce of strength

For every year of our lives’ length

My thanks for wits and furnished brains

And prosp’rous harvest of our grains

Thanks be to God for this abode

And ev’ry water drop that’s flowed

For ev’ry morsel on our plate

And at this table, ev’ry mate

I thank the Lord for ev’ry friend

For family which I attend

I thank the Lord for ev’ry life

Even when they cause me strife

I thank thee, God, that I am free

That I may choose thee willingly

And that I live and rejoice now

By strain of mind and sweat of brow

O thank the Lord this autumn day

For all the blessings that I say

I thank the Lord for these and more

I pray that there is more in store
