thanksgiving, where do I start
To speak of the
gratitude that fills all my heart?
To thank my great
Savior, thatís at the top.
So much He has
done, thereís no place to stop
The love He has
given, His death on the cross.
All menís great
eloquence would be at a loss.
But this I can
mention, then Iíll move on.
He bore my
iniquity, my sins are all gone.
But then thereís
my family and first comes my wife.
She gives of her
loveliness that brightens my life.
And then comes
the children, three lovely girls,
Mom made them
beautiful, with long bouncy curls.
Not to be
forgotten, the grandkids come next.
So much fun to
spoil, their parents to vex.
Thatís why God
gave them, so weíll do our part.
We know you donít
mind. Theyíre close to our heart.
So much to thank
God for, weíve reason to praise,
Giving the Lord
thanksgiving in all of our days.
I Thank Thee for
everything from Thy gracious hand.
All things so bountiful, wonderful and grand.
