Sing a Thanksgiving Song (all year long)

Who says there are no Thanksgiving songs? I actually heard someone on the radio say this. Well, they are wrong! There are beautiful Thanksgiving songs, but you might have to look in the hymnbook to find them. One of my favorites is "For the Beauty of the Earth."  I cannot limit this hymn only to the Thanksgiving season for I often find it drifting through my mind as I survey the world I live in and gawk at the amazing Kansas skies. Here then are the words to this beautiful hymn supplemented by photos from my garden and my childhood.

Thanksgiving blessings to you and yours!


 Lord of all, to thee we raise
 this our hymn of grateful praise.
 





 Lord of all, to thee we raise 
 this our hymn of grateful praise.
 Lord of all, to thee we raise 
 this our hymn of grateful praise. 

 
My sister and I in front of the same church shown above (different building). Still worshipping together after all these years.
















 Lord of all, to thee we raise 
 this our hymn of grateful praise. 


 Lord of all, to thee we raise 
 this our hymn of grateful praise.
