Expressing Gratitude
With Songs and Hymns
WILL Make You Feel Good!

I recommend singing for expressing gratitude. I've been an active church choir singer for years now and I heartily recommend singing your thanks ... it will certainly make you feel good!

You don't have to be a particularly good singer or even join a choir to enjoy singing, but it's tremendous fun if you do ... and very sociable! I can't think of a nicer way of expressing appreciation.

Singing is a wonderful way of expressing gratitude!

You'll find a huge collection of contemporary thank you songs here that are excellent for singing (even if you only sing at home, parked in front of the mirror, with your hairbrush as a pretend mic!)

Songs and hymns which express gratitude in their lyrics are also a brilliant source of inspiration when you're writing your thank you notes.

Using songs for expressing gratitude is obviously popular ... these are some of the most visited pages on my site!
