My Thanksgiving





Not in a pious, perfect prayer
Or in words of propriety
But in each day of joy or care
Lord, let my thanksgiving be

Not in a season set apart
Or for a festive, gaudy show
But by the measure of my heart
Lord, let my thanksgiving flow

Not just because I know I should
Will I choose a blessing to tell
But because you are great and good
Lord, let my thanksgiving swell
