The Pilgrims Came

The Pilgrims came across the sea,
And never thought of you and me;

And yet it's 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.

The people think that they were sad,

And grave; I'm sure that they were glad -

They made Thanksgiving Day - that's fun -

We thank the Pilgrims every one!
