Morning Song – Be Thankful
(One in a series of songs for this Thanksgiving week.)
“Be Thankful” is basically a hymn sung by one of the “mothers of the church”…if the church you grew up in was a 1970s contemporary, cutting-edge Church of God in Christ congregation with a tight funk-soul-gospel band…and Natalie Cole was a mother of the church.
“Waking up in the morning, seeing the sun rise (Well, well)
Is enough to say, ‘I thank you, Lord’;
Rollin’ over, seeing my baby’s eyes, (Uh)
Is enough to say, ‘I thank you, Lord’….
Yes, you should be thankful of all you got”
