Happy Thanksgiving

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thes. 5:18
MOST gracious God, by whose knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew; We yield thee unfeigned thanks and praise for the return of seed-time and harvest, for the increase of the ground and the gathering in of the fruits thereof, and for all the other blessings of thy merciful providence bestowed upon this nation and people. And, we beseech thee, give us a just sense of these great mercies; such as may appear in our lives by an humble, holy, and obedient walking before thee all our days; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with thee and the Holy Ghost, be all glory and honour, world without end. Amen
A Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the Fruits of the Earth and all the other Blessings of His merciful Providence, from The Book of Common Prayer, 1928
