A SIMPLE THANKSGIVING PRAYER
Dear Lord, on this Thanksgiving,
as I bow my head to pray,
my heart is overflowing
with the words I want to say.
But my mind just can't assemble
all the thanks that lingers
so I hope You'll understand
when I just say a simple prayer.
You have blessed me with riches
too numerous to name,
and Lord, I want to tell You
I know from Whence they came.
You've protected me throughout
You've been faithful, kind, and
and Lord, I would not have made
if it had not been for You.
The year behind has come and
there were some trying days,
but through it all You held my
for this I give You praise.
My plate is full with harvests
of food that You provide,
and I'm grateful, Lord, forever,
with a thanks from deep inside.
