‘The Thanksgiving Song’ Cover By The Petersens Is Just Perfect For This Season Of Gratitude

Ben Rector’s “The Thanksgiving Song” covered by The Petersens is the perfect gift for all of us at this special time of the year.

The Petersens Thanksgiving Song

Turkey, egg nog, and of course this cover by The Petersens gives us all a head-start on Thanksgiving.

Ben Rector is the songwriter behind “The Thanksgiving Song” and through this song he reminds us that some things will never change in our lives even as the world has become upside down.

Familiar highways
Lined with leaves turned brown
Making my way
Back into my hometown

Thanksgiving is here again, and it’s a holiday that reminds us of being grateful and thankful to God even in the midst of every situation.

Funny how this all looks different
But it feels the same
Like how life never stops changing
But some things never change

We are reminded of a poignant truth that although Christmas hasn’t arrived yet, but Thanksgiving is here, and we must savor the beauty and comfort of these holidays.

So fill your plate and fill your drink
And fill this house with family
The kind of love that all these years can’t wash away
‘Cause the older that I get
I see that life is short and bittersweet
Thank God for this Thanksgiving Day

Today as The Petersens perform their own take on this song we are reminded of the importance of thanking God for His mercy and goodness together as a family during Thanksgiving and other times as well.
