(084) Thank You Lord


I thank you Lord for this life,
even during times of pain and strife.

I thank you Lord for teaching me to pray,
for giving me, precious moments every day.

I thank you Father for pointing me in the right direction,
for loving me, caring for me and giving me protection.

I thank you Father for all the sorrows,
which teach me to aim for a better tomorrow.

I thank you Jehovah for the amazing children of this earth,
for allowing me three of which I gave birth.

I thank you Lord in the name of your precious son Jesus.

Amen

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;

And home we brought you shoulder-high.
