Thanksgiving With Mitt and Anne

James Ransom

We gather together, to ask the Lord's blessing
He chastens and hastens His will to make known.
But sometimes when He screws up it calls for reassessing:
Put Karl Rove on hold and get God on the phone.

Inspire us with courage and wisdom and grace
From this moment forth 'till the day that we die. Oh,
By the way, there's a letter someplace
Where I asked You to please keep an eye on Ohio.

We reap what we sow and the Lord does the scything.
Explain to me please how we lost one whole sex.
I hope you've kept track of the size of my tithing.
If not I can show you my old cancelled checks.

Through troubles and turmoil our faith yet is strong
Thy great love abiding is always enough.
So tell me how could all the polls be so wrong?
Who made all those people who just want free stuff?
