Thankful – Josh Groban

I took a little break from our Thanksgiving countdown to celebrate my 7th Blog Birthday, and launch my first ever awesome giveaway (be sure to enter here, comment, subscribe & return daily)! Today our Thanksgiving playlist continues with the beautiful song appropriately titled Thankful sung by Josh Groban. It just doesn’t get much better than this! Love the voice. Love the lyrics. Love the gorgeous arrangement which was written by none other than the incomparable David Foster (composer of the song “The Prayer”, also a beloved “friend of the Choir” &  recording guest with Mormon Tabernacle Choir & Andrea Bocelli).

Love the message of this song! It’s well worth reading the lyrics I’ve posted and letting them sink in.

“It’s up to us to be the change, and even though this world needs so much more, there’s so much to be thankful for”.

Thankful  – Lyrics

from the album Noel

Josh Groban - lyrics
Some days we forget to look around us

Some days we can’t see the joy that surrounds us
So caught up inside ourselves
We take when we should give

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And on this day we hope for
What we still can’t see

It’s up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There’s so much to be thankful for

Look beyond ourselves, there’s so much sorrow
It’s way too late to say, I’ll cry tomorrow
Each of us must find our truth
We’re so long overdue

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And every day we hope for
What we still can’t see

It’s up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There’s so much to be thankful for

Even with our differences
There is a place we’re all connected
Each of us can find each others light

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And on this day we hope for
What we still can’t see

It’s up to us to be the change
And even though this world needs so much more
There’s so much to be thankful for
