Thanks to God for my Redeemer,
Thanks for all Thou dost provide!
Thanks for times now but a memory,
Thanks for Jesus by my side!
Thanks for pleasant, balmy springtime,
Thanks for dark and stormy fall!
Thanks for tears by now forgotten,
Thanks for peace within my soul!

Thanks for prayers that Thou hast answered,
Thanks for what Thou dost deny!
Thanks for storms that I have weathered,
Thanks for all Thou dost supply!
Thanks for pain, and thanks for pleasure,
Thanks for comfort in despair!

Thanks for roses by the wayside,
Thanks for thorns their stems contain!

Thanks for hope, that sweet refrain!
Thanks for joy and thanks for sorrow,
Thanks for heav’nly peace with Thee!
Thanks for hope in the tomorrow,
Thanks through all eternity!

Dear Friends,

This is one of my favorite Thanksgiving hymns, written by August Storm in 1891. Carl E. Backstrom translated it from Swedish into English in 1931.  As we enter this month of Thanksgiving, let us be thankful for all that the Lord provides by His hand of mercy.  Let us also continue to remember in prayer all those in our state who are still suffering from the devastation from Superstorm Sandy.  Just this week a family in our church had their house torn down. In addition, as I drive to work in Union Beach, there are still so many damaged homes and empty lots.  My heart really goes out to these people, let us remember them in prayer and do something if you can.

Just a few reminders: (1) ENOCH has recently begun package BoxTops for Education.  Please mail in your boxtops to ENOCH of NJ, P.O. Box 308, Atlantic Highlands, NJ 07716.  (2) We are looking for an Assistant Exhibitor Coordinator for the convention.  If you are interested, please e-mail Michele Gross at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).  Finally, ENOCH now has a group page on Facebook, you can find us at ENOCH of NJ.

"Thanks for hope in the tomorrow, Thanks through all eternity!"

Happy Thanksgiving,
Rich Millward
