Grateful praise!


Together, let’s raise praise!

The Grateful praise Art Card is found in the Thanksgiving Collection and is also available as a 4-Pack.


On October 3, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln gave our nation’s first formal Proclamation of Thanksgiving in Washington D.C.  The proclamation was written by Secretary of State William Seward, and was an invitation to thank God collectively for His provision and care!

The Grateful praise card contains these words from a hymn on the back:

For the beauty of the earth,
For the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies,
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise.
For Thyself, best Gift Divine,
to the world so freely given,
for that great, great love of Thine,
peace on earth and joy in heaven,
Lord of all, to Thee we raise
this our hymn of grateful praise.

Two stanzas from the hymn For the
Beauty of the Earth
by Folliott S.

Pierpoint (1835-1917)

I painted the original artwork for Grateful praise in a workshop given by Impressionist Mark Gingerich with oil paints in a plein-air setting (outdoors) on the top of a hill in Mechanicsburg, Ohio. I felt fully alive as I prayed to see all the nuances in the colors of God’s creation.
