The "General Thanksgiving"
from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer

"Almighty God, Father of all mercies,

we thine unworthy servants do give Thee most humble
and hearty thanks for all Thy goodness
and loving-kindness to us and to all men.
  

We bless Thee for our creation, preservation,
and all the blessings of this life;
but above all for Thine inestimable love
in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ;
for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory.

And, we beseech Thee, give us that due sense
of all Thy mercies, that with truly thankful hearts
we may show forth Thy praise, not only with our lips,
but in our lives, by giving up ourselves to Thy  service,
and by walking before Thee in holiness
and righteousness all our days;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,
to whom, with Thee and the Holy Ghost,
be all honor and glory, world without end.
 

Amen."
