Thank God And Pray


Let us appreciate all gifts... That God has brought our way...
And give our special thanks to Him ... On this Thanksgiving Day
... For life and promise ina a land ... Of opportunity ... And all
the joys we share each day ... With our dear family ... Let us be
grateful for our health ... And for our friendship true ... So many
times so helpful in ... The things we strive to do ... As well as all
compatriots ... Forever at our side ... To help us guard our liberty
... With courage and with pride ... And let us pray that in this
world ... Of rivalry intense ... Humanity, despite its greed ...
May keep its common sense.
