"Thankful Heart" is sung by Ebenezer Scrooge towards the end of The Muppet Christmas Carol, as he goes about the town, making amends for his past misdeeds.


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 lend, and everyday 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 sail a friendly course. file a friendly chart
On a sea of love and a thankful heart

Life s 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 with every breath I take
Will be used now to say your praise
(Used now to sing your praise)
And to beg you to share my days
(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
