Giving Thanks

"We thank Thee, O Father, for all that is bright--; The gleam of the day and the stars of the night, The flowers of our youth and the fruits of our prime, And the blessings that march down the pathway of time. We thank Thee, Father, for all that is drear--; The sob of the tempest, the flow of the tear; For never in blindness, and never in vain, Thy mercy permitted a sorrow or pain. We thank Thee, O Father of all, for the power; Of aiding each other in life's darkest hour; The generous heart and the bountiful hand; And all the soul-help that sad souls understand. We thank Thee, O Father, for days yet to be; For hopes that our future will call us to Thee. Let all our eternity form, through Thy love, One Thanksgiving Day in the mansions above." -Will Carleton
