Happy Thanksgiving!



Sunday, October 3:  Pentecost XIX 

We thank you then, O Maker, for all things bright and good,

the seed-time and the harvest, our life, our health, our food;

accept the gifts we offer for all your love imparts,

and, what from us you long for, our humble, thankful hearts.


All good gifts around us are sent from heaven above;

we thank you, God, O holy God, for all your love.
