Thanksgiving 2010

Count the Blessings Once again our glad thanksgivings Rise before our Father's throne, As we try to count the blessings Of the year so swiftly flown; As we trace the wondrous workings Of His wisdom, power, and love And unite our "Holy! Holy!" With the seraphim above. As we gather round our firesides On this new Thanksgiving day Time would fail to count the blessings That have followed all our way. Grace sufficient, help and healing, Prayer oft answered at our call; And the best of all our blessings, Christ Himself, our All in all. He has blessed our favored country With a free and bounteous hand; Peace and plenty in our borders, Liberty through all our land. And although our sins and follies Oft provoke Him to His face, Mercy still retrains His judgments And prolongs our day of grace. While we love to count the blessings, Grateful for the year that's gone, Faith would sweep a wider vision; Hope would gaze yet further on. For the signals all around us Seem with one accord to say, "Christ is coming soon to bring us Earth's last, best Thanksgiving Day." ~Selected
