Thanksgiving Song

Thursday, November 28, 2013

I did a search and found this song by Mary Chapin Carpenter. I confess, I've never heard it sung.



Grateful for each hand we hold
Gathered round this table.
From far and near we travel home,
Blessed that we are able.


Grateful for this sheltered place
With light in every window,
Saying "welcome, welcome, share this feast
Come in away from sorrow."


Father, mother, daughter, son,
Neighbor, friend and friendless;
All together everyone in the gift of loving-kindness.


Grateful for what's understood,
And all that is forgiven;
We try so hard to be good,
To lead a life worth living.


Father, mother, daughter, son,
Neighbor, friend, and friendless;
All together everyone, let grateful days be endless.


Grateful for each hand we hold
Gathered round this table.
