The Celebrated Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving is more
Than a day in November,
That students of history
Are taught to remember.

For while we still offer
The traditional prayer,
We pray out of habit
Without being aware
That the Pilgrims thanked God
Just for being alive ...
For the strength that He gave them
To endure and survive.

Oh, teach us, dear God,
We are all Pilgrims still,
Subject alone to
Your guidance and will;
And show us the way
To purposeful living
So we may have reason
For daily Thanksgiving.
