A Thanksgiving Prayer

          Dear Father in Heaven
          Please lend me Your ear,
          'Cause I've got a prayer
          You'll be happy to hear.

          Lord, there's no request list
          This time when I pray,
          I just want to give thanks
          This Thanksgiving Day.

          First, I want to thank You
          For gifts from above:
          Your unending mercy,
          Your undeserved love.

          And thank You for sending
          Your Son down to earth,
          For now those in Jesus
          Can have second birth.

          Lord, thank You for saving
          Your children from Hell,
          And giving Your Spirit
          Who comes to indwell.

          And thank You for choosing me
          To be Your own,
          For now that You're in me
          I'm never alone.

          Lord, thanks for forgiving me
          When I'm untrue,
          And last, but not least, Father,
          Thank You for You!


          "Blessed be the God and Father
          of our Lord Jesus Christ
          who according to His great mercy
          has caused us to be born again
          to a living hope
          through the resurrection
          of Jesus Christ from the dead."
          (I Peter 1:4 NASB)
