Fasting changed to feast


"Then joined the voice of first and least    
A hymn of thanks to raise,
Our day of fasting changed to feast    
And prayer gave way to praise
So once in every year we throng    
Upon a day apart,
To praise the Lord with feast and song    
In thankfulness of heart.”
-excerpt from “The First Thanksgiving,” by Arthur Guiterman  (Mr. Guiterman was most known for writing poetry that appeared in periodicals, such as, Life, the Saturday Evening Post, Harper's, and the New York Times).
