Thanksgiving Day

Poem by C. C. Hassler

Through life's changing scenes and sorrows,
Disappointments, hopes and fears,
Sad todays but glad tomorrows
Share alike the passing years;
Passing years, like spectres gliding
Thro' the shadows of the night,
Flit across our vision, hiding
Scenes of long ago from light.
But there comes this thought to cheer us
As through life we wend our way.
Friends we love the best are near us
On the glad Thanksgiving day.

Each decade of time assures us,
Tho' with burdens life is dear;
Dreams of future joys allure us
Onward as life's goal we near,
Not in solid phalanx moving.
Nor like armored knights of yore
Over fallen victims proving
Victors in the art of war,
But in peaceful, glad reunion
Business cares are laid away,
Friends we love in sweet communion
Share our glad Thanksgiving Day.

Thanksgiving Day
Poem by Catharine Ryder

Thanksgiving day! Thanksgiving day!
Send out the needful warning!
Is not a day that's singled out,
But greets us every morning.

Thanksgiving day! Thanksgiving day!
Is like to every other,
A day in which to serve the Lord
And help a needy brother.

Thanksgiving day! Thanksgiving day!
The words like kind beseecher.
Bid us seek life's thankful way.
Through Christ, the Holy Teacher.

Thanksgiving day! Thanksgiving day!
Sound forth the joyous warning.
Rise, Christian hearts, "to watch and pray,"
Thanksgiving lives adorning.

Thanksgiving day! Thanksgiving day!
Is not for sport and pleasure,
But given as a life-time lease
To lay up heavenly treasure.

Thanksgiving day! Thanksgiving day!
0, heed the timely warning,
Is not a day all set apart,
But greets us every morning.

Thanksgiving day! Thanksgiving day!
To hearts low bowed in sorrow,
Look up beyond the earthly gloom,
Where shines a bright to-morrow.

Thanksgiving day! Thanksgiving day!
Is counted here diurnal,
But in God's holy presence there
Thanksgiving is eternal.
