THANKFUL

Somedays we forget
To look around us
Somedays we can't see
The joy that surrounds us
So caught up inside ourselves
We take when we should give.

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be.
And on this day we hope for
What we still can't see.
It's up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There's so much to be thankful for.

Look beyond ourselves
There's so much sorrow
It's way too late to say
I'll cry tomorrow
Each of us must find our truth
It's so long overdue

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And every day we hope for
What we still can't see
It's up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There's so much to be thankful for.

Even with our differences
There is a place we're all connected
Each of us can find each other's light

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And on this day we hope for
What we still can't see
It's up to us to be the change
And even though this world needs so much more

There's so much to be thankful for

This is my all time favorite CD for this Christmas Season. The lyrics of this song, make me think how many times I complain about things that are of no importance. God grant me to think and bring about change. Help me to be the light!
In a quiet, classy way, this incredibly talented young man simply knows and understands that war is a reality. The rest of the music on the CD is gorgeous. Some songs have a boys' choir in the backgrond; in one song he does a duet with Faith Hill that is lovely; and the orchestra is powerful. Sip a latte and enjoy!!

  3. I got this album because of your recommendation. Love it! My husband was laughing at us "old" ladies all liking the same music. He wondered if you all like Il Divo too?? Their Christmas album is another one of my favourites. Elsie
