Thanksgiving

A devotional poem of thanksgiving…

Lord what new thing can I say?
Words have been used in every way
To describe your goodness and your mercy
To express a grateful heart on a day we eat TURKEY!

You deserve more than an “I love you”
You deserve more than a mere “Thank you”
You deserve more than your ears have heard
You deserve more than the words I’ve learned

But until we are face to face
Or I hear new songs from Your gates
I’ll stick to what I know is true
Singing beautiful words to glorify You
To describe your acts of mightiness
To proclaim your holiness
To exclaim when you Glory shines around
To declare when you love came down
To say you are humble and full of greatness
You are pure loving kindness
You are well mannered and eloquent
Speaking educated and brilliant
Your voice is full of authority
Commanding full priority
You have our destiny in focus
Never against us, but always for us

Lord what new thing can I say?
Words have been used in every way
