Playing Thankfulness: Musical Lines of Gratitude

I am a big fan of Christmas music (will do a post on my favorites soon).  But a few years ago I realized that just like the culture I was finding myself skipping Thanksgiving and not really reflecting on all that I am grateful for.  So, I created a special playlist that helps me to get into the Thanksgiving spirit.  Probably many of the songs you may be unfamiliar with and a few are old school, but this is what is playing around here.

  1. “Thank You for Saving Me” by Delirious
  2. “Thank You for Life” by Jeff Deyo
  3. “Thankful” by Jill Phillips
  4. “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing” by Jars of Clay
  5. “How Could I Ask For More?” by Cindy Morgan
  6. “Thank You” by the Katinas
  7. “Joy is in Our Hearts” by Sara Groves
  8. “26 Letters” by Ben Glover
  9. “I Give Thanks” by Vineyard Music
  10. “Forever” by Michael W. Smith
  11. “Today is the Day” by Lincoln Brewster
  12. “Don’t You Want To Thank Someone” by Andrew Peterson
  13. “Thankful” by Caedmon’s Call
  14. “When I Think About the Lord” by Shane & Shane
  15. “All Creatures” by the David Crowder Band
  16. “How Can I Say Thanks” by Evie
  17. “Thank You, Lord” by First Call
  18. “Help Me, Thank You” by Jason Gray

And for the Kids and for Fun …

  1. “Give Thanks to the Lord” by Steve Green (Hide ‘Em in Your Heart)
  2. “Give Thanks” (from Scripture “Seeds of Character” cd)
  3. “Gobble Time” by the String Beans
  4. “Turkey Dinner” by The Littleague

This week especially may songs of praise and thankfulness be playing in our hearts!
