Ev'ry day is a day of thanksgiving.
God you've been so good to me,
Everyday you're blessing me.
Everyday is a day of thanksgiving;
Take the time
To glorify the Lord today.
Ev'ry day is a day
Is a day of thanksgiving.

You keep blessing me,
Blessing me, blessing me.
You opened the door that I might see,
You're blessing me.
And you keep blessing me,
Blessing me, blessing me. 
I will glorify you, O my Lord, today.

Now Thank We All Our God
(VU 236)

Now thank we all our God,
With heart and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things has done,
In whom this world rejoices;
Who from our mothers' arms
Has blessed us on our way
With countless gifts of love,
And still is ours today.

O may this bounteous God
Through all our life be near us,
With ever joyful hearts
And blessed peace to cheer us;
And keep us strong in grace,
And guide us when perplexed;
And free us from all ill,
In this world and the next!

All praise and thanks to God
For all that has been given;
The Son, and Spirit blest
Who dwell in highest heaven;
The one eternal God,
Whom earth and Heaven adore;
For thus it was, is now,
And shall be evermore.

Listen, listen,

Through the Word inviting,
Offering forgiveness,

We Give Our Thanks
(MV 187)

We give our thanks to God,
We give our thanks to God,
We give our thanks to God,
We give our thanks to God.

We give our hands to you, (3x)
Because you reached for us.

We give our eyes to you, (3x)
Because you looked for us.

We give our feet to you, (3x)
Because you walk with us.

We give our hearts to you, (3x)
Because you first loved us.

Offertory Hymn

The Church of Christ In Every Age
(VU 601)

The Church of Christ in every age
Beset by change but Spirit led,
Must claim and test its heritage
And keep on rising from the dead.

Across the world, across the street,
The victims of injustice cry
For shelter and for bread to eat,
And never live until they die.

Then let the servant Church arise,
A caring Church that longs to be
A partner in Christ's sacrifice,
And clothed in Christ's humanity.

For Christ alone, whose blood was shed,
Can cure the fever in our blood,
And teach us how to share our bread
And feed the starving multitude.

We have no mission but to serve
In full obedience to our Lord:
To care for all, without reserve,
And spread Christ's liberating Word.

Joyful, Joyful, We Adore You
(VU 232)

Joyful, joyful, we adore You,
God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before you,
Opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;
Drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness,
Fill us with the light of day!

All Your works with joy surround You,
Earth and heaven reflect Your rays,
Stars and angels sing around You,
Center of unbroken praise;
Field and forest, vale and mountain,
Flowery meadow, flashing sea,
Chanting bird and flowing fountain
Praising You eternally!

Always giving and forgiving,
Ever blessing, ever blest,
Well-spring of the joy of living,
Ocean-depth of happy rest!
Loving Father, Christ our Brother,
Let Your light upon us shine;
Teach us how to love each other,
Lift us to the joy divine.

Mortals, join the mighty chorus,
Which the morning stars began;
God's own love is reigning o'er us,
Joining people hand in hand.
Ever singing, march we onward,
Victors in the midst of strife;
Joyful music leads us sunward
In the triumph song of life.

Common Blessing

May the Blessing of God Be upon You
VU 429

May the blessing of God be upon you.
May God’s love light all your way.
May the grace of Christ enfold you
And peace around you stay.
May the Spirit of God dwell within you.
May you live in joy each day.

Sung Amen
