Let us remember on Thanksgiving day

our forefathers walked in the pilgrim way

forgive our greedy attitude

and give us hearts of gratitude

for providential blessings, Lord, we pray.

all want happy life!

but not every road leads home

pilgrims will seek truth

consider Jesus, the Way

relation, not religion
