Grace for Thanksgiving

156. Grace for Thanksgiving

Whether we sit down tomorrow to a table surrounded by family and laden down with food; or whether we gather at the church and all eat together; or even if sit with a small group; or if by chance we sit down at Thanksgiving alone—we can still sing a grace.

Try this one—it’s to the tune of the Quaker song ‘Tis the Gift to Be Simple. If you don’t know the tune, then read the words. Make copies if you want so that everyone can sing together.

‘Tis the day of Thanksgiving and we all gather round,

To name our blessings with a grateful sound,

The table is prepared—what a wondrous sight,

So many helped that the work was light.

Food’s not the most important thing,

We must not forget why we really sing:

We sing our thanks to God these days

For loving family and loving ways.
