We are here to give thanks.
Thanks for the food laid here before us,
For it gives us nourishment and pleasure.
Thanks for family and friends,
For they give us love and laugher.
Thanks for those who have passed,
For they have given us smiles, memories and legacy.
We ask that wisdom, strength and protection be granted
To those who fight for freedom and peace.
We give thanks for their bravery and fortitude.
Lastly, Thanks to the Lord who guides and protects us
No matter which path we’re on,
For without His presence we are lost and alone.
To You almighty we give thanks.
