When Giving Thanks Comes Hard

Words by Unitarian Universalist Minister Rev. Robert Mabry Doss.

When giving thanks comes hard for you,
And things are grim, and hope runs thin,
Recall:

Despair’s a door to pass on through,
And not a home for living in.

When thanksgiving fills your cup,
And those you love are all about,
Look at your blessings,
count them up,
And give back something to the world without.

Go in peace.
Go for peace.

For all who see God,
May God go with you.

For all who embrace life,
May life return your affection.

For all who seek a right path,
May a way be found . . .

And the courage to take it
Step by step.
