A THANKSGIVING PRAYER 2001

Dear Lord, for all Your bounty
my thanks to You I give.
I'm grateful for my country,
the land in which I live.

Thank You for watching over
my family and my friends;
for giving us Your blessings
with love that never ends.

You've blessed each one with plenty;
our cup has overflowed,
and Lord, I am so grateful
for all that You've bestowed.

And though there's evil lurking
throughout our native land,
I know You'll stay beside us
as courageously we stand.

For all our dauntless heroes
who protect, defend, and save,
my flag of heartfelt gratitude
in prayerful thanks I wave.

For those with loved ones taken,
I pray that You'll sustain
and comfort them through sorrow,
alleviating pain.

Dear Lord, on this Thanksgiving,
in praise my head is bowed.
I thank You for America
who still stands free and proud!
