Thankfulness

Recession; depression; inflation; aggression; corruption; joblessness; hopelessness; hunger; insecurity and many more are what we contend with in our country today.

Many are unhappy, and millions are frustrated.

Too much focus on what we don’t have can prevent us from appreciating what we have.

As tough as things are, we must not fail to be thankful for what we have.

That will give us happiness.

That will lift our spirit.

We must sing the song of praises.

That’s what I’m doing now.

I am singing “We Thank Thee” along with Jim Reeves.

Let’s sing together:

“We Thank Thee”

We thank Thee each morning for a newborn day
where we may work the fields of new mown hay
We thank Thee for the sunshine
and the air that we breathe
Oh Lord we thank Thee

We thank Thee for the rivers that run all day
we thank Thee for the little birds that sing away
we thank Thee for the trees
and the deep blue sea
Oh Lord we thank Thee

Oh yes we thank Thee Lord
for every flower that blooms
birds that sing, fish that swim
and the light of the moon.

We thank Thee every day
as we kneel and pray
that we were born with eyes
to see these things.

We thank Thee for the fields
where the clovers grow
we thank Thee for the pastures
where the cattle may roam
We thank Thee for Thy love so pure and free
Oh Lord we thank Thee.

Oh yes we thank Thee Lord
for every flower that blooms
birds that sing, fish that swim
and the light of the moon.

We thank Thee every day
as we kneel and pray
that we were born with eyes
to see these things.

We thank Thee for the fields
where the clovers grow
we thank Thee for the pastures
where the cattle may roam
We thank Thee for Thy love so pure and so free
Oh Lord we thank Thee.
