Matthew 26:27 (NIV) Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you."
John 11:41 (NIV) Then Jesus looked up and said, "Father, I thank you that you have heard me."
Psalm 50:14 (NIV) Sacrifice thank offerings to God, fulfill your vows to the Most High.
Psalm 100:4 (AMP) Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and a thank offering and into His courts with praise! Be thankful and say so to Him, bless and affectionately praise His name!
Heap high the board with plenteous
cheer, and gather to the feast,
And toast the sturdy Pilgrim band
whose courage never ceased.
Give praise to that All-Gracious One
by whom their steps were led,
And thanks unto the harvest's Lord
who sends our daily bread.
