Worship Songs for Thanksgiving 2023

Our favorite worship songs to bring your heart in line with the season.

As summer slowly slips into fall, many people are beginning to think about holiday prep. It’s a season all about pumpkin spice, cozy sweaters, harvest decor and delicious baked goods. Of course, Thanksgiving is not only about enjoying great food - it’s about remembering all that we’re thankful for.

Thanksgiving provides us with the opportunity to honor God and recognise His impact on your life. Many like to celebrate the season with contemporary Christian music, as they enjoy singing their praise to the Lord.

Incorporate New Traditions into Your Thanksgiving Celebrations

Every congregation has traditions and routines for celebrating at special times of year. Why not incorporate some contemporary Thanksgiving worship songs into your holiday celebrations this year in recognizing God's vast goodness?

Standing before an almighty God who gave His own life to save us gives us every reason to be thankful. As we live out this season and prepare for Advent, I hope a prayerful and intimate song keeps your heart on Jesus Christ.

Whilst I couldn't even narrow it down to the top ten worship songs, there are even more Thanksgiving worship songs to choose from in our collection.

Enjoy Thanksgiving Worship Songs Year Round - Celebrate God’s Ultimate Gift

These Thanksgiving worship songs can be enjoyed at any time of year, because turning to God and Christ Jesus in thanksgiving is always important. It helps us to remember who is on our side, who walks with us, and who calls us as His children. We live in a culture of always wanting more, of anticipating what is in the future and being dissatisfied with what we have in the present.

There is so much to be thankful for, and we hope that these sung hymns bring you closer into the fold of the church and God’s love for you. Whether you’re planning a Thanksgiving service or just want to give thanks, there is no better way to say it than in song.

Whilst these are some of our favorite worship songs, if you need even more ideas for your setlists this Thanksgiving season, view this list from CCLI.
