"The pilgrims who sailed to American's shore,
Were strangers who had not been there before.
Leaving their country and families behind,
They had one purpose and were of one mind.
They wanted a home where they could be free,
Through danger and peril, they crossed the sea.
In heat and in cold, they struggled for years,
Paying the price of blood, sweat and tears.
Bound to each other by faith, love and hope.
They made a new world and learned how to cope.
The problems they faced as they broke up the sod,
Brought them closer together and closer to God.
Today, we who live in the great USA,
Pause to give thanks, on this Thanksgiving day.
Thank God for our nation; a beacon of light,
We keep her strong, by doing what's right."
By Peter Enns
