    Ten thousand thanks to Jesus,
    Whose life our ransom paid,
    Whose blood a full atonement
    For all the world has made.
    Let every heart adore Him;
    Let every creature sing
    Ten thousand thanks to Jesus,
    Our Savior and our King.

    Ten thousand thanks,
    Ten thousand thanks,
    We’ll praise Him o’er and o’er;
    And for the life with Him to live,
    Ten thousand thousand more!


    Ten thousand thanks to Jesus;
    How gladly would we give
    Ten thousand lives to Jesus,
    Had we so long to live.
    Ten thousand tongues shall praise Him,
    Ten thousand songs ascend
    To Him, our blest Redeemer,
    To Him, our dearest Friend!

    Ten thousand thanks to Jesus
    For blessings every hour;
    Ten thousand times ten thousand,
    For love’s redeeming power;
    And when we hear His welcome
    Beyond the rolling sea,
    His love thro’ endless ages
    Our sweetest song shall be!

    Great God of nations, now to Thee
    Our hymn of gratitude we raise;
    With humble heart and bending knee
    We offer Thee our song of praise
    .

    Thy Name we bless, Almighty God,
    For all the kindness Thou hast shown
    To this fair land the pilgrims trod,
    This land we fondly call our own.


    Here freedom spreads her banner wide
    And casts her soft and hallowed ray;
    Here Thou our fathers’ steps didst guide
    In safety through their dangerous way.


    We praise Thee that the Gospel’s light
    Through all our land its radiance sheds,
    Dispels the shades of error’s night,
    And heavenly blessings round us spreads.


    Great God, preserve us in Thy fear;
    In danger still our Guardian be;
    O spread Thy truth’s bright precepts here;
    Let all the people worship Thee.

    In our day of thanksgiving one psalm let us offer
    For the saints who before us have found their reward;
    When the shadow of death fell upon them, we sorrowed,
    But now we rejoice that they rest in the Lord.


    In the morning of life, and at noon, and at even,
    He called them away from our worship below;
    But not till His love, at the font and the altar,
    Had girt them with grace for the way they should go.


    These stones that have echoed their praises are holy,
    And dear is the ground where their feet have once trod;
    Yet here they confessed they were strangers and pilgrims,
    And still they were seeking the city of God.


    Sing praise, then, for all who here sought and here found Him,
    Whose journey is ended, whose perils are past;
    They believed in the Light; and its glory is round them,
    Where the clouds of earth’s sorrows are lifted at last.

    O give thanks to Him Who made
    Morning light and evening shade;
    Source and Giver of all good,
    Nightly sleep and daily food;
    Quickener of our wearied powers,
    Guard of our unconscious hours.


    O give thanks to nature’s King,
    Who made every breathing thing;
    His, our warm and sentient frame,
    His, the mind’s immortal flame.
    O how close the ties that bind
    Spirits to the Eternal Mind!


    O give thanks with heart and lip,
    For we are His workmanship;
    And all creatures are His care:
    Not a bird that cleaves the air
    Falls unnoticed; but who can
    Speak the Father’s love to man?


    O give thanks to Him Who came
    In a mortal, suffering frame—
    Temple of the Deity—
    Came for rebel man to die;
    In the path Himself hath trod
    Leading back His saints to God.

    Over the River and
    Through the Woods


    Over the river and thru the wood,
    To grandfather's house we go;
    The horse knows the way
    To carry the sleigh,
    Thru the white and drifted snow, oh!
    Over the river and thru the wood,
    Oh, how the wind does blow!
    It stings the toes,
    And bites the nose,
    As over the ground we go.


    Over the river and thru the wood,
    To have a first-rate play;
    Oh, hear the bell ring,
    "Ting-a-ling-ling!"
    Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day-ay!
    Over the river and thru the wood,
    Trot fast my dapple gray!
    Spring over the ground,
    Like a hunting hound!
    For this is Thanksgiving Day.

    We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing;
    He chastens and hastens His will to make known.
    The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing.
    Sing praises to His Name; He forgets not His own.

    Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining,
    Ordaining, maintaining His kingdom divine;
    So from the beginning the fight we were winning;
    Thou, Lord, were at our side, all glory be Thine!

    We all do extol Thee, Thou Leader triumphant,
    And pray that Thou still our Defender will be.
    Let Thy congregation escape tribulation;
    Thy Name be ever praised! O Lord, make us free!




    I have been given strict instructions by my wife and my children not to utter one political word between now and Saturday.
    So, I will leave you guys and gals with a prayer and ill see you all then.
    Happy turkey day God Bless all of you and your families.




    Heavenly Father, on Thanksgiving Day
    We bow our hearts to You and pray.
    We give You thanks for all You've done
    Especially for the gift of Jesus, Your Son.
    For beauty in nature, Your glory we see
    For joy and health, friends and family,
    For daily provision, Your mercy and care
    These are the blessings You graciously share.
    So today we offer this response of praise
    With a promise to follow You all of our days.
    --Mary Fairchild

    God Bless you all Greg and may we all be thankful this Thanksgiving Day and everyday.

    Psalm 111
    Matthew 19:26
    But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

    My God, I thank Thee, who hast made
    The earth so bright,
    So full of splendor and of joy,
    Beauty and light;
    So many glorious things are here,
    Noble and right.

    I thank Thee, too, that Thou hast made
    Joy to abound;
    So many gentle thoughts and deeds
    Circling us round,
    That in the darkest spot of earth
    Some love is found.

    I thank Thee more that all our joy
    Is touched with pain,
    That shadows fall on brightest hours,
    That thorns remain;
    So that earth’s bliss may be our guide,
    And not our chain.

    For thou who knowest, Lord, how soon
    Our weak heart clings,
    Hast given us joys, tender and true,
    Yet all with wings;
    So that we see gleaming on high
    Diviner things.

    I thank Thee, Lord, that Thou hast kept
    The best in store;
    We have enough, yet not too much
    To long for more:
    A yearning for a deeper peace
    Not known before.

    I thank Thee, Lord, that here our souls
    Though amply blessed,
    Can never find, although they seek
    A perfect rest;
    Nor ever shall, until they lean
    On Jesus’ breast.

    Lamp of our feet whereby we trace
    Our path when wont to stray;
    Stream from the fount of heav’nly grace,
    Brook by the traveler’s way.

    Bread of our souls whereon we feed,
    True manna from on high;
    Our guide and chart wherein we read
    Of realms beyond the sky.

    Pillar of fire, through watches dark,
    Or radiant cloud by day;
    When waves would break our tossing bark,
    Our anchor and our stay.

    Word of the ever living God,
    Will of His glorious Son;
    Without Thee, how could earth be trod
    Or Heav’n itself be won?

    Yet to unfold thy hidden worth,
    Thy mysteries to reveal,
    That Spirit which first gave thee forth,
    Thy volume must unseal.

    Lord, grant us all aright to learn
    The wisdom it imparts
    And to its heavenly teaching turn
    With simple, childlike hearts.

    [color=darkred][b]We are a garden walled around,
    Chosen and made peculiar ground;
    A little spot enclosed by grace
    Out of the world’s wide wilderness.

    Like trees of myrrh and spice we stand,
    Planted by God the Father’s hand;
    And all His springs in Zion flow,
    To make the young plantation grow.

    Awake, O, heav’nly wind! and come,
    Blow on this garden of perfume;
    Spirit divine! descend and breathe
    A gracious gale on plants beneath.

    Make our best spices flow abroad,
    To entertain our Savior God
    And faith, and love, and joy appear,
    And every grace be active here.

    Let my Belovèd come and taste
    His pleasant fruits at His own feast:
    “I come, My spouse, I come!
