A Thanksgiving Tea

Last year at about this time our very loosely formed "Keeper's At Home" group had a Thanksgiving Tea.  I made up a song booklet and everyone brought a dessert to share.  The brothers of the girls were also invited and we had one very talented friend who could accompany us on the piano.  I found a copy of the song booklet and thought I would share some of the songs we sang together last year.  Our group hasn't been meeting this year - and I do miss this gathering of friends.

Simple Gifts (this video is amazing!)

Servant Song

All Who Hunger, Gather Gladly

All who hunger, gather gladly, holy manna is our bread.
Come from wilderness and wandering.
Here in truth, we will be fed.
You that yearn for days of fullness, all around us is our food.
Taste and see the grace eternal.  Taste and see the God is good.

All who hunger, never strangers; seeker, be a welcome guest.
Come from restlessness and roaming.
Here in joy we keep the feast.
We that once were lost and scattered, in communion as love have stood.
Taste and see the grace eternal.  Taste and see that God is good.

All who hunger, sing together, Jesus Christ is living bread.
Come from loneliness and longing.
Here, in peace, we have been led.
Blest are those who from this table live their lives in gratitude.
Taste and see the grace eternal. Taste and see that God is good.
