Thankful Heart is a song in The Muppet Christmas Carol.


With a thankful heart

With an endless joy

With a growing family

Every girl and boy

Will be nephew and niece to me

(Nephew and niece to me)

Will bring love, hope and peace to me

(Love, hope and peace to me)

Yes, and every night will end

And every day will start

With a grateful prayer

And a thankful heart

With an open smile and with open doors

I will bid you welcome

What is mine is yours

With a glass raised to toast your health

(With a glass raised to toast your health)

And a promise to share the wealth

(Promise to share the wealth)

I will sail a friendly course

File a friendly chart

On a sea of love and a thankful heart

Life is like a journey

Who knows when it ends?

Yes, and if you need to know

The measure of a man

You simply count his friends

Stop and look around you

The glory that you see

Is born again each day

Don't let it slip away

How precious life can be

With a thankful heart that is wide awake

I do make this promise

Every breath I take

Will be used now to sing your praise

(Used now to sing your praise)

And beg you to share my day

(Beg you to share my days)

With a loving guarantee

That even if we part

I will hold you close in a thankful heart

I will hold you close in a thankful heart

In a thankful heart!
