We Thank You, God


We thank You, God, for everything ... That we posess today
... And most of all we thank You for ... Our democratic way ...
... The right to live in liberty ... And freedom from all fear ...
In comfortable security ... And brotherhood sincere ... The
The right to vote the way we want ... And worship as we please ...
According to our principles ... And human sympathies ... We
thank You for Your blessings and ... The turkey that we eat ...
And ask that You will hear our prayers ... As humbly we entreat
... And thank You , God, for all Your gifts ... However old or
new ... We love You and we worship You ... And give our
thanks to You.
