A Thanksgiving Day Prayer

We take so much for granted
of life and liberty,
and think tht we deserve it;
that all was done "for me."

Think how they must have struggled,
new pilgrims in this land.
So many died from hardships
yet still they made a stand.

When all the work was finished,
new crops sowed in the ground,
they gathered with their neighbors, 
asked blessings all around.

Oh, God, help us be grateful
for gifts you've sent our way.
For these we want to thank you
on this Thanksgiving day.
