(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.

The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.
