Author Unknown 无名氏


For the hay and the corn and the wheat that is reaped,

感谢收获的干草、苞谷和小麦,


For the labor well done, and the barns that are heaped,

感谢辛勤的劳作与堆满的谷仓,


For the sun and the dew and the sweet honeycomb,

感谢阳光、雨露和甜蜜的蜂巢,


For the rose and the song and the harvest brought home --


感谢玫瑰、歌儿以及庄稼的丰收--

        Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!


        感恩!感恩!



For the trade and the skill and the wealth in our land,

感谢祖国的商贸、技术和财富,


For the cunning and strength of the workingman’s hand,

感谢匠人灵巧而有力的双手,


For the good that our artists and poets have taught,

感谢我们的艺术家与诗人许下的美好祝愿,


For the friendship that hope and affection have brought --


感谢希望与爱心所带来的友谊

        Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!

        感恩!感恩!





For the homes that with purest affection are blest,

感谢纯洁爱心所护佑的家园,


For the season of plenty and well-deserved rest,

感谢收获的季节和劳作后的歇息,


For our country extending from sea unto sea;

感谢我们的祖国疆界广阔;


The land that is known as the "Land of the Free" --


两大洋呵护的国家,世界闻名的“自由国度”--

        Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!


        感恩!感恩!
