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 isnโ€™t slighted
A grudge to cling to
Heโ€™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
