I remember once reading, how our first President
Told us to be thankful and not to resent

He gave a speech where, he spoke a few words
I’ll paraphrase it, as it needs to be heard..

Wheras it’s the duty, of the US of A
to remember the Creator, Who blesses our days.
He cares and protects, if we obey His Will
so let us all try, to all be thank-full
Both houses of Congress, have asked me to say:
That this is “thanksgiving’s” one holiday.
So while we are feasting and while we recline
let us be thankful to, the one Who’s Divine.

Thanksgiving’s a time when family comes calling
there’s more to it that, yes, with food and footballing

So why not remember, what Washington said
and turn to our Bible’s where you’ll find it read

“Let us offer up praise, to God continually”
“the fruit of our lips, with love thankfully”
(Hebrews 13:15)
