Hymn of Thanks Giving

Here’s a hymn I wrote recently to a familiar tune. Try singing it on this day before Thanksgiving. It’s the only hymn I know of with the word “chocolate” in it. Yeah! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!

Song of Thanks Giving

Tune: Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee

Thank you for the friends around me,

Thank you for the food I eat,

Thank you for the porch I sit on,

Thanks for chocolate, rich and sweet.

Thank you for my family gathered,

Even when we don’t agree,

Thanks for goals that keep me striving,

Thank you for the world I see.

Thank you for the storm that’s swirling,

Helps me work for peace sublime,

Thank you for my daily projects,

Help me carefully to use time.

Thank you for the opposite pieces,

For the yes, and for the no,

Help me listen, help me offer

New directions we can go.

Thank you for the busy parts of

Every day in which I live,

Thank you for the times of silence

When I settle in to give.

Give myself into your service,

God of plenty, God of spare,

Help me keep on seeing thank-you’s

In my life—most everywhere.
