He is your praise, and he is your
And all the angels stood
round about the throne,
and about the elders
and the four beasts,
and fell before the
throne on their faces,
and worshipped God,
Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and
and thanksgiving, and honour, and
power, and might,
be unto our God for ever
and ever. Amen.
Be glad, O people of the Lord
Be glad, rejoice in Him,
The Lord has done great things for us
Far more than can be seen.
The trees are bearing plenteous fruit
The fig tree and the vine,
Rejoice, The Lord, The Righteous One
Is ever good and kind.
He sends abundant showers in spring
And in Autumn as before,
The vats will swirl with oil,
Grain overflow the threshing floor.
He will repay for all the years
The locust stripped away,
He will restore til we are full
And we will give Him praise.
No more will peoples of the Lord
Be shamed and overcome with grief,
For love's unfolding from His Hand-
In Him we are complete.
Soft whispers from Joel 2

Poetry from The Heart
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him
and praise his name.
Happy Thanksgiving !
You are the peace of all things calm
You are the place to hide from harm
You are the light that shines in dark
You are the heartís eternal spark
You are the door thatís open wide
You are the guest who waits inside
You are the stranger at the door
You are the calling of the poor
You are my Lord and with me still
You are my love, keep me from ill
You are the light, the truth, the way
You are my Lord, this very day.
