LYRICS for MY THANKSGIVING PRAYER

MY THANKSGIVING PRAYER

Lyrics by Peter J. Carman
Music by Steve Schalchlin

In this time of My Thanksgiving
As my song begins to rise
Listen to the prayer within me
Look into my grateful eyes

As I humbly stand before you
As I reach out with my hand
May the music bring a healing
To this cold and troubled land 

In this Time of My Thanksgiving
In this Time of My Thanksgiving

God of Love who made apostles
Out of every clan and race
In this time and in this valley
You are there in every face

As I face the burnished offerings
To the gods of power and fear
Make of me a living offering
Let me be your servant here

In this Time of My Thanksgiving
In this Time of My Thanksgiving

Give us grace to face the struggle
Which the world yet holds in store
Walk beside us ever loving
Grant us peace forevermore 
In this time grant us peace
In this time grant us peace
