Thanks We Give - A Poem

James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. 

Thanks We Give

O Thou Giver of each blessing,
That Thy children here enjoy,
We would bring our humble tribute,
And our powers of praise employ;
Thou art good and Thou art gracious,
Full of mercy and of love,
Every perfect blessing cometh
Down from Thee in Heav’n above.

Thanks we give to Thee, our Father,
In the name of Christ, Thy Son,
For the bounties we are sharing—
Thou hast given every one.
Thou hast led us, Thou hast fed us,
Thou hast given homes so dear,
And the friends who freely love us,
Whose bright smiles our pathway cheer.

More than all we thank and praise Thee
For the Bible—precious boon—
For the boundless love unfolded
In the gift of Thy dear Son.
For the hope of life immortal—
That the blest shall live with Thee,
In the land where death comes never,
Through the vast eternity.

- G.T. Wilson -

Ephesians 5:18-21 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
