This is my Thanksgiving Song
Words & Music by Helmut Licht
I may not be a millionaire
But I see flowers everywhere - Thank you!
I may not drive a fancy car
But I hear music near and far - Thank you!
I may have lost someone I love
But I marvel at the stars above - Thank you!
I may not have the ideal weight
But I can choose to love instead of hate - Thank you!
We can go through life griping
And singing the blues
A lemon will be sour, honey will be sweet.
Recall the man who complained he had no shoes
Until he saw a man who had no feet!
I may not always be in perfect health
But I have God for inner wealth - Thank you!
I may not see the rainbow's end
But I can say: "I have a friend" - Thank you!
At times I feel so all alone
But then there rings my telephone - Thank you!
And when I'm lost in darkest night
A star will send its guiding light - Thank you!
I know that taxes always rise
But I see a handicapped who tries and tries - - Thank You!
I see the homeless in the street
Tonight I'll have a meal to eat - - Thank You!
They say that crime is everywhere
But I see volunteers who really care - - Thank You!
And when everything is going wrong
God lets me write a pretty song - Thank you!
