Why "Thankful"

Several years ago I was looking for a new solo to sing for the holiday season and came across this beautiful song on Josh Groban's 2007 album "Noël".  I shared it with my good friend, Chris Garofalo and he arranged "Thankful" for strings, piano and tenor.  

"Thankful" Lyrics

Somedays, we forget to look around us,
Somedays, we can't see the joy that surrounds us,
So caught up inside ourselves,
We take when we should give,


Refrain: So for tonight we pray for,
What we know can be,
And on this day we hope for,
What we still can't see,
It's up to us, to be the change,
And even though we all can still do more,
There's so much to be thankful for,
