Children shared words of thanks from different faith traditions at the annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Celebration on Sunday (Nov. 24). Here’s a look at the quotes, along with what tradition they are from and who read them.

Judaic: “O give thanks unto the Lord. The Lord, for he is good because his mercy endures forever.” -Akhil Elangovan

“O praise the Lord all ye nation. Praise him all ye people. For his merciful kindness is great towards us. And the truth of the Lord endures forever. Praise to you o Lord.” -Ashwath Elangovan
