(1st Verse)

Here we are once again

Right back where we began

We’re cooking in the kitchen

We’re watching holiday traditions

There’s a parade on TV

Floating by on the screen

The Lions and the Cowgirls

Battle for the drumsticks

(Chorus)

Do not lose heart*

This is our golden age

Do not let go of the memories we made

Though outwardly we are wasting away*

Do not let memories grow old & grey

Inwardly we are being renewed day by day*

Living in the moment

Making new memories

Remembering to give thanks

(2nd Verse)

Sitting at the table passing the peas

Bird in the middle, more mashed potatoes please

Sail that gravy boat on over to me

Want to pour it all over the white and dark meat

Asparagus and stuffing, corn on the cobb too

Three kinds of mushrooms are waiting for you

Marshmallows melted over Grandma’s yams

Cranberry sauce from the finest can

(Bridge)

We made it through the good and the bad

Here’s a toast to those we have and to those we had

Wherever you are, thanks for reminding us, Dad

Grant the wish of the broken bone that made the loser sad

(Chorus)

Do not lose heart*

This is our golden age

Do not let go of the memories we made

Though outwardly we are wasting away*

Do not let memories grow old & grey

Inwardly we are being renewed day by day*

Living in the moment

Making new memories

Remembering to give thanks

(3rd Verse)

Gobble gobble gobbling dessert

Sweet potato and pumpkin pie all over our shirts

*excerpted from 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
