Thanksgiving song for school, church, or just quiet personal meditation, "For the Beauty of the Earth" is a very pretty hymn. Arranged for beginner piano, 4-part harmony or piano, and other instruments, download these Thanksgiving songs free.
Thanksgiving songs are hard to find, but this song is one of the better-known hymns. For the Beauty of the Earth lyrics paint a picture of why we love our world and all that is in it, and the gratitude that sometimes wells up inside us. This video (Barlow Girl) changes the meter of the hymn, but is effective (sorry, there seems to be an ad first):

There are a lot of chord changes in this hymn! If you and your beginner student wish to turn this into a duet, follow the chord symbols above the melody. But if an accompaniment uses a flowing chord pattern, those fast changes won't be necessary.

As a Thanksgiving Day treat, I place here a short NON-MUSIC VIDEO from a radio host I adore (Dennis Prager), who speaks about the importance of GRATITUDE.
HAPPINESS, he says, IS IMPOSSIBLE without an attitude of gratitude, or THANKSGIVING. He says, "What is the single most important characteristic, or source, of happiness? Gratitude. ...gratitude leads to both happiness and goodness."
