‘Grateful’ Gaither Vocal Band Thanksgiving Hymn

‘Grateful’ Gaither Vocal Band Thanksgiving Hymn

A group of supremely talented vocalists, the Gaither Vocal Band, performed a catchy, upbeat tune about being appreciative and thankful for what the Lord has done and provided.

The calendar only has one day dedicated to and set aside for giving thanks for the many blessings in our lives. However, having an attitude of thankfulness and gratefulness is something all Christians should possess the other 364 days of the year. Stopping and giving thanks is not only a good habit, but it’s also biblical. Throughout God’s word, and in many different instances, Christians are to give thanks to the Lord.

In a clip posted on YouTube, the five men who comprise the Gaither Vocal Band sing a tune about being thankful and grateful, which is appropriately called “Grateful.”

The five men, joined by a sixth gentleman strumming on the guitar, praise and worship the Lord for what He has done and continues to do in their lives. In the first verse, the guys sing about appreciating the small things often overlooked in our rushed, hurried lives.

They mention how they are thankful for each brand-new day that the Lord gives them. Seeing and feeling the sunshine on their face in the morning, hearing the birds chirp and simply enjoying a cup of coffee are blessings, according to the talented singers.

In the song’s chorus, the singers praise and thank the Lord for allowing them to experience another day on Earth. 

“Grateful, grateful
Oh, I’m oh so grateful
Lord, I’m grateful
Grateful for this day”

Thanksgiving is a holiday essentially dismissed by the retailers and the advertisers. Every year, places like Walmart, Kroger and Target quickly go from Halloween to Christmas with their supplies and store décor, completely skipping over Thanksgiving. 

But despite the reluctance of some of the massive retailers to recognize the Thanksgiving holiday, it’s one that should get much more attention from everyone, including Christians. Being thankful and grateful should not be confined to one day out of the year but practiced all 365.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 “In everything give thanks: for this is the purpose of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
