THANKSGIVING POEM 2014
Heavenly Father, we are gathered on this day,
To give thanks for the debt that we can never repay.
We remember the gift of your one and only Son,
And the work of salvation that Jesus has done.
In a world full of turmoil and war you have given us peace.
In a world full of hunger you have given us a feast.
The blessings you have bestowed are more than words can express.
We know that without you we would be in deep distress.
May we show our thanks by sharing what you have given us,
With all those that are suffering with pain we won’t discuss.
We can’t pay you back for you are rich beyond all measure.
But you have called us to share with others your treasure.
For how can we say that we have a heart of thanksgiving,
If we do not respond with a spirit of giving?
On this day and always may we honor your blessings,
By sharing your blessings and with hearts full of singing.
