Thanksgiving stirs a desire to let hymns glide over me and mellow my soul. I want to soak their wisdom like a dehydrated sponge. My heart longs to overflow with their undiluted praise.

Oh to put golden words like these to music...Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness {Lamentations 3}

Alas, I do not possess that talent. But Thomas Chisholm and William Runyan did and their outpouring of love to the Lord is one of my favorite hymns.

How about you? What's your favorite come?

Great is Thy Faithfulness
Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

*Chris Rice

And here's one by Sara Groves{with a twist} because, know I love me some Sara Groves!

I don't really have a favorite hymn but my favorite praise and worship song is The Voice of Truth by Casting Crowns. It holds a soecial place, whenever I get to that place and I cry out to Jesus to let me know everything is going to be ok, that song comes on radio, never fails, everytime, God is so great. It is always a joy visiting your blog. Happy Thanksgiving to you.
