Not Thankful, Grateful

We are not thankful
For a country divided
But we are grateful
In our one God united

We are not thankful
For disease that we fear
But for unfailing love
Found in this moment here

We are not thankful
That our loved one died
But for the comfort
Of the Lord by our side

Not thankful for a job lost
So difficult to cope
But grateful for our Savior
For He is our true hope

Not thankful for pain
For the burdens we bear
But our Lord through his cross
In our suffering, share

We are not thankful
For the pain this life brings
But for our faith
To its promise, we cling

Not thankful for all
But if we live gratefully
The fruit will be joy
Into eternity
