Happy Thanksgiving

God is good and deserves our praise and thanksgiving.

This is my favorite Thanksgiving hymn. It reminds me that I need to “give thanks in all circumstances” (I Thessalonians 5:18).
 

Thanks to God for My Redeemer

August Ludwig Storm

 

Thanks to God for my Redeemer, Thanks for all thou dost provide!

Thanks for times now but a memory, Thanks for Jesus by my side!

Thanks for pleasant, balmy spring-time, Thanks for dark and dreary fall!

Thanks for tears by now forgotten, Thanks for peace within my soul!

 

Thanks for prayer that Thou hast answered, Thanks for what Thou dost deny!

Thanks for storms that I have weathered, Thanks for all Thou dost supply!

Thanks for pain and thanks for pleasure, Thanks for comfort in despair!

Thanks for grace that none can measure, Thanks for love beyond compare!

 

Thanks for roses by the wayside, Thanks for thorns their stems contain!

Thanks for home and thanks for fireside, Thanks for hope, that sweet refrain!

Thanks for joy and thanks for sorrow, Thanks for heavenly peace with thee!

Thanks for hope in the tomorrow, Thanks thru all eternity!

 

What are you especially thankful for this year?
