The First Thanksgiving
Song for Teaching About Thanksgiving
Learning by Song/Barbara Speicher


This song, along with the instrumental version, sheet music, and extension activities, is available on Barbara Speicher's "Learning American History by Song"

          

Pilgrims left their homeland on the Mayflower ship
From the Church of England they wanted to split
Some sought grand adventure and some needed work
They were all determined and from danger did not shirk

Chorus
First Thanksgiving, oh praises give voice
First Thanksgiving, oh people rejoice
First Thanksgiving, oh praises give voice
First Thanksgiving, oh people rejoice

Storms made them seasick and the main beam cracked...

Chorus

Food was scarce and many died, how could they stay alive...

Chorus

Feasting altogether they thanked God* for ev’rything...

Chorus

Oh people rejoice…give thanks
