November Day of Thanks
By: Twisted Heart

Upon this day we tend to pray
For all our gracious gifts
abound
We stand in thanks for on this day
Our spirits we uplift
with sound.

A feast before our eyes is laid
In humbleness we bow
our heads
To thank the lord for what he gave
Our many blessings now
Are fed.
