    When I think of Thanksgiving, the hymn, Come Ye Thankful People Come always is in my head. I remember learning it as a child. It meant even more to me after visiting Plymouth Rock and the Plymouth Plantation, seeing where and how those first Pilgrims lived. What a miracle that they survived. Babs

    At my church every year we sing Harvest Home on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. I love it cause the first Thanksgiving was a celebration of a highly bountiful harvest.

    Re: Thanksgiving Hymns

    I love that line,  "all are safely gathered in , err the winter storm begin.

    Living in the Northeast, you realize what that can mean. I am always so thankful to look around my house and see the pantry foods, wood stacked on the porch, warm coats, blankets. We are so blessed to have what we need.  Not always what we thing we need or want. G'd give us enough to be safe that is all that counts. Babs

    Re: Thanksgiving Hymns

    We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing--that's a line from one of my favorites.

    Although it's not considered a Thanksgiving hymn, I enjoy singing "Count your blessings name them one by one" this time of year.

    I agree, Dear ALl, with the choice of "We gather toge ther." My favorite line is "Be thankful to His name, He forgets not His own." WHen I was a child, & I had a difficult upbringing, those words were so comforting .... Yours in Him, Deborah & Heart
