Away Thanksgiving Day

For every parent who’s away
And can’t come home Thanksgiving,
Know deep reflections fill the day
And hope abounds for blessings.
Though absent, they are always near
They’re in our hearts and always dear.

For brothers, sisters, far away
Who can’t come home Thanksgiving,
Know family ties will not give way
They’ll bind us evermore.
Though absent, they are always near
They’re in our hearts and always dear.

For every child who’s away
And can’t come home Thanksgiving,
Know that prayers are yours today
And aching hearts are pining.
Though absent, they are always near
They’re in our hearts and always dear.

For every soldier who’s away
And can’t come home Thanksgiving,
Know every loved one yearns today
To see you safely home.
Though absent, they are always near
They’re in our hearts and always dear.

Psalm 86:12I will give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and will glorify Your name forever.
