A Few Christian Poems For Thanksgiving Day

Updated on April 27, 2011

The Great Harvest

Let the seeds be planted in the richest soil

and the roots grow firm in the ground,

and soon above the giving earth

the hardy plants abound.

Let the tears of the rain the smile of the sun

draw the shoots up to the sky,

and the ripened plants stand mellow with gold

as the first geese fly by.

Let the scythe be swung so the plants may grow

tall in the fields again,

and the earth will stand peak high in the light

reflected from fields of grain.

Let thankfulness raise the sheaves of joy

and store each seed apart,

to once again be sown and tilled

and harvested in the heart.

Dixie Lynne


For mother-love and father-care,

For brothers strong and sisters fair,

For love at home and here each day,

For guidance lest we go astray,

Father in Heaven, we thank Thee.

For this new morning with it's light,

For rest and shelter of the night,

For health and food, for love and friends,

For ev'rything His goodness sends,

Father in Heaven, we thank Thee.

For flowers that bloom about our feet,

For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet,

For song of bird and hum of bee,

For all things fair we hear or see,

Father in Heaven, we thank Thee.

For blue of stream and blue of sky,

For pleasant shade of branches high,

For fragrant air and cooling breeze,

For beauty of the blooming trees,

Father in heaven, we thank Thee.



"Faith of our fathers" renew us again

And make us a nation of God-fearing men

Seeking Thy guidance, Thy love and Thy will,

For we are but Pilgrims in need of Thee still---

And, gathered together on Thanksgiving Day,

May we lift up our hearts and our hands as we pray

To thank you for blessings we so little merit

And grant us Thy love and teach us to SHARE IT.
