All Thanks Is Yours

By J. Randal Matheny

  For Thanksgiving Day, from Revelation 4

To know You, this, above all gifts, is mine,
Your Son as Savior, the Holy Spirit as sign,
And more——the message placed within our hands,
As holy partners to preach while the world stands.

All thanks is Yours, who made us for your joy,
We seek Your face, with all our powers employ
Both voice and heart to sing, with heaven, Your praise,
With gratitude, Your glorious and gentle ways.

No golden crowns to toss before the throne,
No eyes both front and back, to know and be known,
No ceaseless bows nor constant words of thanks,
But soon we hope to join the elders' ranks.
