Well it is Thanksgiving and be should say welcome home
Put aside our differences instead of creating a perfect storm
Instead love one another like it is the norm
So give your parents a hug and kiss and say it’s good to home
So live in the moment and don’t bicker about the past
Live with each other in harmony and be thankful for what you got
You never know if you will be here again at this very spot
So make memories that are joyous and will last.
We aren’t guaranteed tomorrow and when our maker calls us home
So let’s take care of the present and say three precious words I love you
Be thankful for the turkey, the trimmings and ask what can I do
When you are at peace with God and the one’s you love you are never alone.
So welcome home you weary traveller God will say to us
My son or daughter you need not weep no more
You have run the race well as He opens up the door
I am yours and you are mine he will say to us.
