Thanksgiving Bible Verses 感恩的经文

By Ling-Ling Shih, Copyright © 2009-2012

Here are a few Thanksgiving Bible verses we can learn to praise the Lord and give thanks to  him  on this special day and anytime throughout the year. I also include a thanksgiving gospel song.  I have probably included too much information in this lesson, but you can divide this lesson into a few sessions and learn it  in a few days.

Give thanks to the Lord, our God and King
His love endures forever
For He is good, He is above all things
His love endures forever
Sing praise, sing praise

With a mighty hand and an outstretched arm
His love endures forever
For the life that’s been reborn
His love endures forever
Sing praise, sing praise
Sing praise, sing praise

Forever God is faithful
Forever God is strong
Forever God is with us
Forever, forever

From the rising to the setting sun
His love endures forever
And by the grace of God we will carry on
His love endures forever
Sing praise, sing praise
Sing praise, sing praise

Forever You are faithful
Forever You are strong
Forever You are with us
Forever, forever

  1. Thanks. I am trying to memorize Psalm 107:1.

    • Great! Keep up the good work. Before you know it, you will become well versed in Chinese. It is like learning how to play piano or guitar. You can make a quantum leap after putting a good amount of hard work. But that day will come only when people are willing to put in the work first.

Thank you for your comment.
