Back in the 70's I wrote the following chorus and we used it at our home church just before the Sunday School broke up to go to their classes. It was a song of praise for the first 4 lines and then a song of petition for the final 4. I thought Thanksgiving Weekend would be a good time to shake off the dust and bring out the chorus.
Here it is:
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
Come into His courts with praise;
Lift high the name of Jesus,
Look upon His face.
(now more quiet and prayerful)
Quietly we wait before You,
Teach us now we pray;
Lead us to the Fount of Blessing,
Fill us with your love today.
- words and music by David W. Fisher
HAPPY THANKSGIVING, DEAR FRIENDS!
