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 there,
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 the year;
You've been faithful, kind, and true,
and Lord, I would not have made it
if it had not been for You.

The year behind has come and gone;
there were some trying days,
but through it all You held my hand;
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.
