The turkey is stored in plastic,
the gravy gelling on a cold plate.
The dinner was really fantastic,
And heads were all bowed for grace.

Are we still thankful
today for family and for friends?
Or do we again become bashful
no remembering God to make amends?

Are we not today still blessed
while out shopping for gifts and clothing?
Is heaven at all impressed
Since hands are no longer folding?

God has given his most precious gift
His son, Jesus has died for you
So remember today to be thankful
For Jesus, our health and family too.
