Lyrics

In the still November,
Like a sunbeam bright,
Comes the glad Thanksgiving,
Full of joy’s own light.

Refrain

Let us thank the Father
For the gifts He sends;
For our loving parents,
Happy home and friends.

Now at home’s dear fireside,
Many a loving band
Meets in joy together,
In this happy land.

Refrain

And tho’ we, rejoicing,
Taste Thanksgiving’s cheer,
’Tis the happy home-love
Makes the time so dear.
