We like to sing this Akathist, also called the Akathist of Thanksgiving, on the morning of Thanksgiving. It was written by a Russian Orthodox priest shortly before he died while in a Gulag prison camp in Siberia. It is very moving to see his deep gratitude to God in the midst of such terrible suffering.

Update!

Fr. Joshua and M. Jenny Mosher have kindly shared a pdf document of this akathist that they put together. It is in a booklet form and includes music. Thank you!
