1O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. 2Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. 3For the Lord is a great God and a great King above all gods. …6O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker. 7For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice.

When the summer’s drought was broken, did you thank God for the rain?
When the crops were safely garnered, did you thank Him for the grain?
When you watched Fall’s flaming beauty clothing al the forest land,
Did you thank God for the picture from the Master painter’s hand?
When you read of ragged children begging for a crust of bread,
Did you thank the Heavenly Father that your own were clothed and fed?
When death-dealing bombs were bursting and the war planes zoomed afar,
Did you whisper, “Lord, I’m thankful that our land is free from war?
Have you counted all your blessings, tried to name them, one by one?
Friends and health and work and shelter? See! You’ve only just begun.
Blessings, ye we have so many, we could never name them all;
Let’s lift our hearts in glad thanksgiving for all blessings, great and small!
Have a happy, safe Thanksgiving!
Our sympathies goes out to Clint Breeden in the death of his grandmother, Bernice Pearl Breeden.
