Season of Thanksgiving

Our church service yesterday was just beautiful. I tried to recreate part of it to share with you. Imagine yourself coming into our little church with the lovely stained glass window, sit down on one of our blue-covered pews, and enjoy some beautiful music.

Psalm 100:4-5
Enter into his courts with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Come, ye thankful people come, raise the song of harvest home
All is safely gathered in, ere the winter storm begins
God, our maker doth provide for our wants be satisfied
Come to God's own temple, come, raise the song of harvest home.

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flowers before thee, opening to the sun above
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness, drive the dark of doubt away
Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day!

For the beauty of the earth
For the beauty of the skies
For the love from which our birth over and around us lies
Lord of all, to thee we raise this our hymn of thankful praise!

Give to our God immortal praise;
Mercy and truth are all His ways:
Wonders of grace to God belong,
Repeat His mercies in your song.

Psalm 131:6
O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.

Praise, O praise our God and King
Hymns of adoration sing
For His mercies still endure
Ever faithful, ever sure.

O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain
For purple mountain's majesties above the fruited plain
America, America, God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea

Now thank we all our God, with heart and hands and voices 
Who wondrous things has done in whom this world rejoices
Who from our mother's arms has blessed us on our way
With countless gifts of love, and still is ours today.
