Music Monday: A Week of Giving Thanks

    This being the week of Thanksgiving, I wanted to start off today keeping the attitude of gratitude in the forefront. With that in mind, here are "Thankful" by Josh Groban and "Gratitude" by Nichole Nordeman.



    Thankful (lyrics)

    Somedays we forget
    To look around us
    Somedays we can't see
    The joy that surrounds us
    So caught up inside ourselves
    We take when we should give.

    So for tonight we pray for
    What we know can be.
    And on this day we hope for
    What we still can't see.
    It's up to us to be the change
    And even though we all can still do more
    There's so much to be thankful for.

    Look beyond ourselves
    There's so much sorrow
    It's way too late to say
    I'll cry tomorrow
    Each of us must find our truth
    It's so long overdue

    So for tonight we pray for
    What we know can be
    And every day we hope for
    What we still can't see
    It's up to us to be the change
    And even though we all can still do more
    There's so much to be thankful for.

    Even with our differences
    There is a place we're all connected
    Each of us can find each other's light

    So for tonight we pray for
    What we know can be
    And on this day we hope for
    What we still can't see
    It's up to us to be the change
    And even though this world needs so much more

    There's so much to be thankful for




    Gratitude (lyrics)

    Send some rain, would You send some rain?
    'Cause the earth is dry and needs to drink again
    And the sun is high and we are sinking in the shade
    Would You send a cloud, thunder long and loud?
    Let the sky grow black and send some mercy down
    Surely You can see that we are thirsty and afraid
    But maybe not, not today
    Maybe You'll provide in other ways
    And if that's the case . . .

    (Chorus)

    We'll give thanks to You
    With gratitude
    For lessons learned in how to thirst for You
    How to bless the very sun that warms our face
    If You never send us rain

    Daily bread, give us daily bread
    Bless our bodies, keep our children fed
    Fill our cups, then fill them up again tonight
    Wrap us up and warm us through
    Tucked away beneath our sturdy roofs
    Let us slumber safe from danger's view this time
    Or maybe not, not today
    Maybe You'll provide in other ways
    And if that's the case . . .

    (Chorus)

    We'll give thanks to You
    With gratitude
    A lesson learned to hunger after You
    That a starry sky offers a better view if no roof is overhead And if we never taste that bread

    Oh, the differences that often are between
    What we want and what we really need

    So grant us peace, Jesus, grant us peace
    Move our hearts to hear a single beat
    Between alibis and enemies tonight
    Or maybe not, not today
    Peace might be another world away
    And if that's the case . . .

    (Chorus)

    We'll give thanks to You
    With gratitude
    For lessons learned in how to trust in You
    That we are blessed beyond what we could ever dream
    In abundance or in need
    And if You never grant us peace

    But Jesus, would You please . . .
