A Thanksgiving Poem


In this clip, Hannah and Jack recite their Thanksgiving poem (with one interruption when Jack heard a truck drive by our house).

May all who share these gifts today
Be blessed by Thee, we humbly pray.
What God gives and what we take
‘Tis a gift for Christ, His sake;
Be the meal of beans or peas,
God be thanked for those and these;
Have we flesh or have we fish,
All are fragments from His dish.

-Robert Herrick (1591-1674)
