Awakening with Thanks

We come as the broken
Self-righteous, with pride
Ungrateful and selfish
With ego reside

We gather together
Or lonely we be
Eyes set on a feast
Or football to see

We bow for a blessing
Perhaps rushing through
In moment of silence
A turning to You

Let us offer a prayer
One of the deep
On Thanksgiving day
For the Spirit to seep

For God isn’t slighted
A grudge to cling to
He’ll take what you give
Shine light upon you

So let us be grateful
Let our souls turn above
Awake from this moment
To rejoice in great love
