Thanks to God (Tack, O Gud)
by August L. Storm and Johannes A. Hultman

Here is this week’s Unadorned Trumpet Hymn. Thanks to God! As we approach Thanksgiving day, I want to invite everyone here to reflect on those things that you can be thankful for. But here’s the catch… thankful to whom? The bible says that all good things come from our Heavenly Father. Let’s all be thankful to our creator for all the good He has done in our lives.
Here is the full text of the hymn:
- Thanks to God for my Redeemer,
Thanks for all Thou dost provide!
Thanks for times now but a mem’ry,
Thanks for Jesus by my side!
Thanks for pleasant, balmy springtime,
Thanks for dark and stormy fall!
Thanks for tears by now forgotten,
Thanks for peace within my soul!
- Thanks for prayers that Thou hast answered,
Thanks for what Thou dost deny!
Thanks for storms that I have weathered,
Thanks for all Thou dost supply!
Thanks for pain, and thanks for pleasure,
Thanks for comfort in despair!
Thanks for grace that none can measure,
Thanks for love beyond compare!
- Thanks for roses by the wayside,
Thanks for thorns their stems contain!
Thanks for home and thanks for fireside,
Thanks for hope, that sweet refrain!
Thanks for joy and thanks for sorrow,
Thanks for heav’nly peace with Thee!
Thanks for hope in the tomorrow,
Thanks through all eternity!
