Thoughts on Thanksgiving

There are way too many things to put on a list of what I have to be thankful for.  From the little things that can come and go, to the one thing that can never be taken from me.  May we never forget to give the thanks to the One deserving.

Ps 69:30
I will praise the name of God with a song;I will magnify him with thanksgiving.
Ps 106:48
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,from everlasting to everlasting!And let all the people say, Amen!Praise the Lord!
Isa 25:1
O Lord, you are my God;I will exalt you; I will praise your name,for you have done wonderful things,plans formed of old, faithful and sure.
Ps 147:1
Praise the Lord!For it is good to sing praises to our God;for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is fitting.

“Praise the King”

Praise Him in the morning
For tall and lofty trees
And praise Him in the evening
For children on their knees
Oh and praise Him in the noon day
For gentle birds that sing
Oh praise Him all ye people
Praise the King

And praise Him for a peaceful porch
And rocking chairs that sway
Praise Him for the rolling hills
Where children laugh and play
Oh and praise Him for the wandering soul
That never lost their way
Oh praise Him all ye people
Praise the King

Chorus:
Praise the King
Praise the King
Let it ring
Praise the King
Praise the King
Praise the King
Let it ring
Praise the King

And praise Him for the blood that fell
And bloomed a rose that day
And praise Him that He suffered through the guilt, the grief, the shame
Oh and praise Him that His tender love will still forgive today
Oh praise Him all ye people praise the King

    Thanks for giving us something good to think about. Very little of my day has been spent thinking about what I should be thankful for, if any of it.

    Amen! I’ve been thanking God a ton recently 🙂 Seeing those passages really makes me think of the joy the psalmists must have had to write such things. Who wrote that song you have quoted?
