Feasting, prayers, family and friends, football, and parades are synonymous with the magnificent festival of Thanksgiving. And above all, turkey forms the central figure of this truly glorious occasion. With preparations, that begin at the end of Halloween and end with the beginning of Christmas celebrations, Thanksgiving is commemorated with much pomp and fervor across the United Stated of America. Celebrated yearly on the 4th Thursday of November, this joyous day is observed as a harvest festival to thank God for the bountiful produce obtained during the fall season. To add to your thanksgiving, we present you a harmonious song titled "Creation's Lord, We Give You Thee Thanks" penned by William De Witt Hyde in 1903, and harmonized by William H. Monk. Check out the lyrics of the song in the following lines.
Creation's Lord, we give Thee thanks
That this Thy world is incomplete;
That battle calls our marshaled ranks;
That work awaits our hands and feet.
That Thou hast not yet finished man;
That we are in the making still,
As friends who share the Maker's plan
As sons who know the Father's will.
Beyond the present sin and shame,
Wrong's bitter, cruel, scorching blight,
We see the beckoning vision flame,
The blessed kingdom of the right.
What though the kingdom long delay,
And still with haughty foes must cope?
It gives us that for which to pray,
A field for toil and faith and hope.
Since what we choose is what we are,
And what we love we yet shall be,
The goal may ever shine afar-
The will to win it makes us free.
"Creation's Lord, We Give Thee Thanks" is a melodic Thanksgiving song. With this piece, know the lyrics of the song.
