Filled with family, friends, and feasts, Thanksgiving is a delightful and joyous holiday, commemorated on the 4th Thursday of November. Offering thankfulness and gratefulness to the Lord for his blessings and abundant produce at the end of the harvest season is the principal thought behind its observance. The beauty and concept of Thanksgiving Day can best be highlighted with a song. Traditional Thanksgiving songs are generally based on psalms or scriptures. They sound soulful and heartwarming when sung by the entire family around the Thanksgiving Dinner table or during the church mass. One of these traditional hymns is "To Thee, O God, We Render Thanks", a paraphrase of Psalm 75, sung to the melody of "Farrant", adapted from Richard Farrant. Check out the lyrics in the following section and add it to your list of Thanksgiving songs this year.
To Thee, O God, we render thanks,
To Thee give thanks sincere,
Because Thy wondrous works declare
That Thou art ever near.
Thy righteous judgment, Thou hast said,
Shall in due time appear,
And Thou Who didst establish it
Wilt fill the earth with fear.
Thou teachest meekness to the proud,
And makest sinners know
That none is Judge but God alone,
To honor or bring low.
Jehovah holds a cup of wrath,
And holds it not in vain,
For all the wicked of the earth
Its bitter dregs shall drain.
The God of Israel I will praise
And all His glory show;
The righteous He will high exalt
And bring the wicked low.
The following hymn praises and thank God for his blessings that he has so kindly showered on us.
