THANKSGIVING PRAYER

by Pearl Leona Sturgis

WE GATHER TOGETHER
THIS TIME OF THE YEAR
TO THANK GOD FOR BLESSINGS...
FOR JOY AND FOR TEARS.

FOR DAWN FOLLOWS DARKNESS
AND SUN FOLLOWS RAIN.
MISTAKES ARE OUR LESSONS
FOR BETTER TO CHANGE.

LORD HELP US TO KNOW
WHAT IT MEANS TO FORGIVE
AND HOW TO BE THANKFUL
EACH DAY THAT WE LIVE.

TO FEEL AS A FAMILY
TO WORK AS A TEAM.
TO KNOW WHAT THE WORDS
OF APOLOGY MEAN.

TO GIVE IT OUR BEST
WHEN THE PATH SEEMS SO ROUGH;
TO KEEP RIGHT ON TRYING
AND KNOW THAT'S ENOUGH.

TO STOP AND CONSIDER
WE'RE ALL PRONE TO FLAW;
TO REACH OUT OUR HAND;
BUT OUR HEART MOST OF ALL.

WHILE SOME CHOOSE TO FOLLOW
AND OTHERS TO LEAD...
TO WALK SIDE BY SIDE
IS THE REAL THING WE NEED.

SO KEEP US IN MIND, LORD.
WE'RE THANKFUL TO THEE,
TO LIVE AND TO WORK
IN THE LAND OF THE FREE.
