Thanksgiving Comes Before Christmas

As hearts still pound
From Trick-or-Treat
We hear a sound
Both glad and sweet

The carols swell;
Joy's everwhere
As vendors sell
Their Christmas fare

We all prepare
To give and get
And do not care
It's not time yet

Although December's
Still a month away
No one remembers
Thanksgiving Day

Give thanks when you
Still have got naught
As well as when you
Receive a lot;

Give thanks before
Blessing's received
And be no more
By greed deceived

For when you do
The Lord will give
His Joy to you
Each day you live.
