Today's Truth and Beauty: "Give thanks" is a decree and a plea, an affirmation and an adjuration. En♥, -me!
Decree-an imperative directive (e.g., We must always offer grateful thanks.)
Plea-an earnest solicitation (e.g., Remember to express gratitude.)
Affirmation-a positively stated assertion (e.g., We are sincerely and continually gratified.)
Adjuration-a solemn prayer (e.g., Much gratification to you.)
The truth and beauty is reflected in the certifiable, courteous service of gratefulness, regardless of grammatical classification.
