Thanksgiving Day is all about expressing your gratification and appreciation towards God for the harvest and blessings conferred upon the people of America in the past year. Commemorated on the fourth Thursday of November, Thanksgiving is a four-day festival marked with loads of fun, enjoyment, thrill, and merriment. Plenty of traditional and seasonal delicacies, visiting family and friends, offering prayers, and watching exuberant parades are the most popular customs of Thanksgiving Day. "Thanks To God" is an old Swedish hymn which reminds everyone what to be thankful for. It is written by August L. Storm and sung to the melody of "Sols-kens-sang-er" composed by Johannes A. Hultman. The hymn is about thanking God not just for the good life granted by him, but also for the tears, storms, pain, peace, comfort, grace, and love he provides. This lilting, sweet melody narrates all the good and bad for which one should appreciate and thank the Lord. Continue browsing for the wordings of the song.
Thanks to God for my Redeemer,
Thanks for all Thou dost provide!
Thanks for times now but a memory,
Thanks for Jesus by my side!
Thanks for pleasant, balmy springtime,
Thanks for dark and stormy fall!
Thanks for tears by now forgotten,
Thanks for peace within my soul!
Thanks for prayers that Thou hast answered,
Thanks for what Thou dost deny!
Thanks for storms that I have weathered,
Thanks for all Thou dost supply!
Thanks for pain, and thanks for pleasure,
Thanks for comfort in despair!
Thanks for grace that none can measure,
Thanks for love beyond compare!
Thanks for roses by the wayside,
Thanks for thorns their stems contain!
Thanks for home and thanks for fireside,
Thanks for hope, that sweet refrain!
Thanks for joy and thanks for sorrow,
Thanks for heavenly peace with Thee!
Thanks for hope in the tomorrow,
Thanks through all eternity!
