Thanksgiving Day

The day is cold but brisk and bright
Families gather their hearts are light
Beams of happiness shed their ray
They're glad it is Thanksgiving Day.
This day with all it means
Tables laden, festive scenes,
We wonder as we look around
At the turkey so tenderly browned
At the sauces and pies we see
Are we as thankful as we should be?

Thankful for our strength and health
For the richness of untold wealth,
For the goodness of those we love
For the sun and many stars above.
For a country as great and grand as ours,
With the freedom of its mighty powers,
Let us bow our heads and say
Truly this is Thanksgiving Day!
