“Thanksgiving” by Henry Coyle
We thank Thee, Father, for Thy care,
For countless blessings that we share;
For all life’s trials, pains and pleasures,
And all its labors and its treasures!
We thank Thee for Thy blessed light,
The sun by day, the moon by night;
For summer’s heat and winter’s blast,
For gloom and shadows o’er us cast;
For hearts with love for Thee imbued,
For tongues to speak our gratitude;
For all Thy blessings from above,
For everything we owe Thy love;
For restful slumber and the gleams
Of Paradise we see in dreams;
For hope that ever upward springs To Thee,
O God, on Faith’s strong wings;
For peace and plenty — grace untold,
And blessings rich and manifold;
Our thanks and praises now are given To Thee,
O Father, Lord of Heaven!
From The Promise of Morning (1899)

Thank you, Thomas! We’ll be having our Thanksgiving meal on Sunday when David and Caroline should be feeling 100%. But we’re thankful every day for our many blessings.
