Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

And now let me give you a snippet of the variety of hymns and poems that I had to recite/sing (for a grade) when I was in elementary school... 

Come, Ye Thankful People, Come

Come, ye thankful people, come, raise the song of harvest home;
All is safely gathered in, ere the winter storms begin.
God our Maker doth provide for our wants to be supplied;
Come to God’s own temple, come, raise the song of harvest home.
 WE GATHER TOGETHER
We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing;
He chastens and hastens His will to make known.
The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing.
Sing praises to His Name; He forgets not His own.
THE PILGRIMS CAME  by Annette Wynne
The Pilgrims came across the sea,
And never thought of you and me;
And yet it's very strange the way
We think of them Thanksgiving day. 

We tell their story, old and true
Of how they sailed across the blue,
And found a new land to be free
And built their homes quite near the sea. 

Every child knows well the tale
Of how they bravely turned the sail
And journeyed many a day and night,
To worship God as they thought right.
 Enjoy your holidays,
