The Pilgrims Came

The Pilgrims came across the sea
And never thought of you and me;
And yet its very strange the way
We think of them Thanksgiving day.

We tell their story, old and true,
Of how they sailed across the blue,
And found a new land to be free
And built their homes quite near the sea.

Every child knows well the tale
Of how they bravely turned the sail
And journeyed many a day and night,
To worship God as they thought right.

(Anonymous, USA)
