Not Just for this Thanksgiving Day

Not just for this Thanksgiving day
But for all our days on earth
We owe all that we have, to You
For every breathe we take
-
You stood with us through all our woes
Upon the cross You hung
Spread Your arms and died for us
For such a love, You rose
-
We prosper in the plans You’ve made
For family, friends and health
But most of all, the trust we have
Is in You above all else
-
We sometimes ask about a promise true
A better place than here
When our lot in troubled hours
Is oft times hard to bear
-
But Lord You are our strength indeed
Your girth bears every load
Our eyes are fixed apon You Lord
We’ll walk Your streets of gold
-
Not just for this Thanksgiving day
But for all our days on earth
We thank you Lord for Your warm, sweet love
The promise indwelt from birth
