The Source of All Blessings for Thanksgiving
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (James 1:17 KJV)
But what beautiful and simple words they were! The hymn shouted its praise to the Source of all our blessings. It announced praise with a joy and passion for all God’s glory. Fortunately this hymn, which is today referred to as the Doxology, was soon taken from the shadows and saw its popularity quickly spread. Do you catch the irony here? This hymn, first used in secret, has become the most frequently sung piece of music used in public worship!
Consider singing these joyful words of praise as your Thanksgiving prayer:
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow.
Praise Him, all creatures here below.
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host.
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost! Amen.
