Let Us Give Thanks

 

“Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.” – Psalm 136:1

Let us bless God for the eyes with which we behold the sun, for the health and strength to walk abroad in the sunlight; let us praise Him for the mercies which are new every morning, for the bread we eat, for the clothes we wear, for houses which give us shelter.

Let us bless Him that we are not deprived of our reason, or stretched upon the bed of suffering; let us praise Him that we are not cast out among the hopeless, or confined among the guilty; let us thank Him for liberty, for friends, for family and comforts; let us praise Him for everything which we receive from His hand, for we deserve little, and yet are most blessed.

“His mercy endures forever.” Every morning’s light proclaims it, the beams of every moon declare it; every breath of air, every heaving of the lungs, every beating of the pulse, are fresh witnesses that “his mercy endures forever.”

– C.H. Spurgeon
