Do I recall correctly that Logos has a feature that shows the key words in a specified book or passage? As I prepare an overview of 1 Thessalonians, I want to know what the key words are: how many times does "hope" appear, "joy," "appearing?" Is there any way for Logos to show me this? Are other words more frequent that I haven't thought of ("crown?"). I don't want to ask Logos about a certain word or theme, I'd like Logos to tell me which words appear most frequently. I seem to recall being surprised as the software will see / count / perceive things I may not notice or have thought of to my ignorance or bias. 

Hope someone can help!

Have a look at Important Words to see if that is what you want. It is based on original language words, but you can see the words in your preferred bible. Click a word for a Bible Word Study, which you can then restrict to your passage for frequency and see how it is translated in other bibles. Hover  on Lemma in Passage for frequency in the bible, but run a Word List on the passage to compare the frequency of different words (it won't be restricted to important words).

I'd use the concordance tool for this.

I wouldn't mix 'key' and simple frequency counts. There's quite a few 'key' words, both theology-based and context-based that are surprisingly  infrequent but 'key'.

A key thought in Greek is imperative (command) verbs used in 1 Thessalonians, which can be found using Morph Search:

My favorite feature is Visual Filter Highlighting so can "see" range of Greek Verbal expression (by highlighting morphological use). Logos wiki has => https://wiki.logos.com/Extended_Tips_for_Highlighting_and_Visual_Filters#Examples_of_visual_filters
