Happy Thanksgiving

We thank Thee, Father,
God, of all,
For green of Spring,
And gold of Fall!

For shining stars,
For calm of night,
For trees in bloom,
For birds in flight;

For music of
The sky and sea;
For love of friends
And family;

For woods and hills
And lakes and streams;
For laughter, song,
And hopes and dreams.

For mother's tender,
Loving care -
For things of beauty

We thank Thee for
The joy of living;
And sing a hymn
Of our thanksgiving!
