Thankfulness

SONG: “Thankfulness” is an encouraging Christian song written by Carolin Schneider.

“Thankfulness” is an upbeat and encouraging Christian song written by Carolin Schneider to help people realize the tremendous power that lies in being thankful. It is sung here by Judy Schneider.

Thankfulness! Thankfulness!
Thankfulness! Thankfulness!

We can take so much for granted,
Friends and family, hands and toes.
Now I stop to ask the question,
“Have I thanked the Lord for those?”

Has it really dawned on you,
What true thankfulness will do?
Satan trembles with dismay;
‘Cause one thankful heart drives his hosts away!

We are practicing thankfulness,
No complaints or bitterness.
We stand together in this fight!
Grace from God, strength from God
Give us help to take things right!

Thankfulness is independent
Of both time and circumstance
I’m the one deciding factor
I can be grateful, yes, here’s my chance

Thankful people give a blessing
To the others on their way.
You can also bless if you
Practice thankfulness every day!

We are practicing thankfulness,
No complaints or bitterness.
We stand together in this fight!
Grace from God, strength from God
Give us help to take things right!

Thankful! Thankful!
We are thankful! Thankful!

We are thankful. (For the others.)
Thankful. (Yes, all the time!)

We are thankful. (For the others.)
Thankful. (Yes, all the time!)

We are thankful. (For the others.)
Thankful. (Yes, all the time!)

We are thankful.
Thankful for every trial as I learn to do the good!

We are thankful. (To be free from envy.)
Thankful. (And self-pity too!)

We are thankful. (To be free from envy.)
Thankful. (And self-pity too!)

We are thankful. (To be free from envy.)
Thankful. (And self-pity too!)

We are thankful.
Thankful that I can be a member of the brotherhood!

When your heart is truly thankful,
You’ll be filled with joy inside.
All your trials will be lighter
‘Cause doubting and fear will be thrown aside!

Come along and join our band,
Armed with thankfulness in your hand!
Side by side we onward press!
Come what may on our way!
We will stay in thankfulness!
Thankfulness!
