..... Christian Poet's Pen: Thanksgiving Poems!

Let Thanks Resound!

Somehow in our busy days,
“Thanks” are left behind.
Lost amid the bright displays,
Thankfulness has pined.

Blessings more than we can count
Flow from heaven’s throne.
Daily gifts that ever mount,
Yet thanks, are seldom sown.

So this Thanksgiving, gathered there
As every head is bowed,
Let thanks and worship fill the air
With gratitude out loud!

Thank Him till the meal is cold,
For all that God provides.
Thank Him for the hand you hold;
For blessings that abide.

Worthy is our loving Lord.
Let thankful hearts be stirred.
May Christ be all the more adored,
And thankful hearts be heard.

You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever.
Psalms 30: 11,12 NIV

Worthy is our loving Lord, indeed!

An enjoyable piece; reminds me of the Scripture verse "Unless the Lord builds the house..."; we need to remain humble to prevent ourselves from losing that attitude of gratefulness - keeping our eyes focused on Him can assist us on having a proper perspective.
