Prayer of Thanksgiving

A wonderful prayer found in the new Missal, expressing our thanksgiving to God that we (at least in America) give in a particular way today.
It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation, always and everywhere to give you thanks, Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God. For, although you have no need of our praise, yet our thanksgiving is itself your gift, since our praises add nothing to your greatness but profit us for salvation, through Christ our Lord.
Common Preface IV, 2010 Roman Missal (OF)
