Thanksgiving

“In Every thing GIVE THANKS
for this is the will of God in CHRIST JESUS
concerning you.” I Thessalonians 5:18

 

What blessed the heart
      of the fugitive
      hiding from Saul
      in Adullam’s cave?
What turned the battle
     so Judah would live?

Praise and Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving and Praise!

What did the leper
       return to bring
       faithful to glorify
      God’s great ways?
What did those jailed
      at Philippi sing?

Praise and Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving and Praise!

What lifts the spirits
      of those depressed,
      burdened or grieving
      o’er yesterdays?
What sacrifices
      are always blessed?

Praise and Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving and Praise!

What brings delight
      at the Throne above
      as multitudes worship
      the Lamb Who saves?
What will continue
      as long as Love?

Praise and Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving and Praise!
