“Absence of gratitude is the mark of the narrow, uneducated mind. It bespeaks a lack of knowledge and the ignorance of self-sufficiency. It expresses itself in ugly egotism and frequently in wanton mischief... Where there is appreciation, there is courtesy, there is concern for the rights and property of others.
Without it there is arrogance and evil."

Gordon B. Hinckley, October, 1964

“Living in thanksgiving daily is a habit that will enrich our lives and the lives of those we love...Those who live in thanksgiving daily have a way of opening their eyes and seeing the wonders and beauties of this world as though seeing them for the first time."

She gently released the little girl's grip and said comfortingly to the five-year-old Johnny, "There, there. She didn't mean it. She doesn't know that it hurts."

Mom was barely out of the room when the little girl screamed. Rushing back in she said, "What happened?"

"She knows now," little Johnny explained.

Lyrics by Henry Alford (07 Oct 1810 - 12 Jan 1871);

Music by Sir George Job Elvey (29 Mar 1816 - 1893), organist at St. George's Chapel,
Windsor Castle for nearly fifty years, about 1844
Come, ye thankful people, come,
Raise the song of harvest home;
All is safely gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin.
God our Maker doth provide
For our wants to be supplied;
Come to God's own temple, come,
Raise the song of harvest home.

All the world is God's own field,
Fruit as praise to God we yield;
Wheat and tares together sown
Unto joy or sorrow grown;
First the blade and then the ear,
Then the full corn shall appear;
Lord of harvest, grant that we
Wholesome grain and pure may be.

For the Lord our God shall come,
And shall take the harvest home;
From the field shall in that day
All offenses purge away,
Giving angels charge at last
In the fire the tares to cast,
But the fruitful ears to store
In the garner evermore.

Even so, Lord, quickly come,
Bring thy final harvest home;
Gather thou thy people in,
Free from sorrow, free from sin,
There, forever purified,
In thy presence to abide;
Come, with all thine angels, come,
Raise the glorious harvest home.
