I’m thankful for the joys of life;
For every single blessing.
I’m thankful for Your promise
To forgive sins I’m confessing.

I’m thankful for the strength you give
When I am at my weakest.
I’m thankful for the Christian friends,
Especially for the meekest.

I’m thankful for the Savior Who
Provided my salvation;
Who also promised us His strength
In every tribulation.

I’m thankful for the suffering
That helps me more to see
The needs of others I can help
As I get help from Thee.

Lord, help me as I live each day
To live it for Your Glory.
I want my life to show to all
A true Thanksgiving story.
