Thanks Giving

We thank you, Lord…

For the beauty and wonder of your creation, in earth and sky and sea…For all that is gracious in the lives of men and women, revealing the image of Christ…For daily food and drink, our homes and families, and our friends…

For minds to think, and hearts to love, and hands to serve…For health and strength to work, and leisure to rest and play…

For the brave and courageous, who are patient in suffering and faithful in adversity…For all valiant seekers after truth, liberty, and justice…For the communion of saints, in all times and places.

We thank you, Lord.

Above all, we give you thanks for the great mercies and promises given to us in Christ Jesus our Lord; to him be praise and glory…

We thank you, Lord.

(from a litany of thanksgiving,  page 837, The Book of Common Prayer)
