Not your traditional Thanksgiving song, this one is simple–a timely reminder for our fast-paced society. Happy Thanksgiving, at the holidays and always!

1. We wake up each day without thinking,
Except to take the stock of stress and strain.
We get up and go without blinking,
And we miss all the good we have to gain.
And something in our lives has got to change.
Refrain:

2. We move all the time without feeling,
But letting loose a litany of pain.
We curse and complain without healing,
Despite the cleansing comfort of the rain.
And something in our lives has got to change.
Refrain:

3. We breathe and receive God in Spirit.
So let us not forget to praise His name.
His wisdom and Word, we can hear it
When we take the time to go within and pray.
‘Cause He promises to never, ever change.
Refrain:

Give thanks.

Refrain:
Let’s have a great, full heart
And a great, full mind
With a great, full body
Praising God’s design.
And give thanks.
Give thanks.

Service Means Everything

For Freddy and all veterans, and everyone who offers their selfless service to make this world a much better, brighter, and safer place. May God bless you; thank you for your service!

1. There are raging battles, in the world and in your mind.
And sometimes all you want to do is hunker down and cry.
But you stand and take it, ’cause you know you’re gonna make it.
You might win, or you might lose, but still you fight.

Refrain:
‘Cause you don’t sherk your duty.
You don’t lurk with your bootie
On the dock, waitin’ for a ship to come in.
You just keep it going
And give it all you got while knowing
The God you serve on earth is heaven’s king.
And as long as you live,
Your service means everything.

2. You might be a hero in a uniform.
Or maybe you’re an anchor, giving comfort in the storm.
And you stand and take it, ’cause you know you’re gonna make it.
Oh it hurts, but still you work to keep them warm.
Refrain:

3. We can make the peace in a world that cannot see.
We’re the keepers of the kingdom; in our hearts we hold the key.
So we stand and take it, ’cause we know we’re gonna make it.
God above sent his son to set us free.

So we don’t sherk our duty.
We don’t lurk with our bootie
On the dock, waitin’ for a ship to come in.
We just keep it going
And give it all we got while knowing
The God we serve on earth is heaven’s king.
And as long as we live,
Our service means everything.

As long as you live,
Your service means everything (2x).

How do you know what’s right or wrong?
What keeps you together;
What makes you fall apart?
Living by your sweet heart.

How do you choose to take a stand?

What drives you from the start?
Living by your sweet heart.

So all you really gotta do
Is let it make your choice
And be your greatest part
Living by your sweet, sweet heart.

And it’s your best part,
So let your mind embrace your
Sweet heart (4x).

And there’s no way to change it.
He gave your best part,
So let your mind embrace it.

Love and Romance

Romance is a summer evening stroll
With love a comfort through the heat and cold.

Romance is a shooting star so bright
With love the shining moon in darkest night.

Romance is a gift of tender song
With love the voice that sings forever strong.

Romance is a flutter sweet to feel
With love a steady flight to good and real.

Romance is a kiss to start a fire
With love the burning flame of deep desire.

Romance is a momentary bliss
With love the key to lasting happiness.

Romance may be quick but just as sure
With love to hold its hand forevermore.
