  Let Us Give Thanks  

 

    If we have lived another year
And, counting friends by regiments
Who share our love and confidence,
        Find no more broken ranks,
        For this let us give thanks.

    If, since the last Thanksgiving-time,
Have we been blessed with strength and health,
And added to our honest wealth,
        Nor lost by broken banks,
        For this would we give thanks.

    If through adversity we trod,
Yet with serene and smiling face,
And trusted more to saving grace
        Than charlatans and cranks,
        For this let us give thanks.

    If we have somehow worried through
The ups and downs along life's track,
And still undaunted can look back
        And smile at Fortune's pranks,
        For this would we give thanks.

    If every page in our account
With God and man is fairly writ,
We care not who examines it,
        With no suspicious blanks,
        For this let us give thanks.

       - Hattie Howard
