Families near will gather round
Friends will join us too
Food and drink will abound
And there is much to-do.
Enjoy the gathering kinship
And relish the special day
But don't forget to include the worship
And to give thanks in a special way.
Count the blessings we've been given
Count each one with prayer
For there would be not one given
If not for God being always there
From His hand these gifts come
From His heart, with love.
Whether you're near or far from home
Today, thank the Father above.
