'HOW I THANK YOU OH GOD'


I thank you for the breath in my body as I arise
I thank you God for sleep to rest my eyes

Thank you oh God for friends who are many
Thank you for the sky above
Thank you most of all for Jesus
And for family you loaned to us to love

Thank you for tonight
Thank you for tomorrow too
Oh God I just want to say thank you
For all of your mercy and forgiveness and all you do

Friends come and go but you remain the same
I am so thankful I can call upon your wonderful name

Father teach me guide me help me to be more like you
Lord guide my mind my heart and my life too

I will serve you all of my days
I will glorify your name with my ways

We are so weak in comparison to you father God
But help us to be humble
As we wait to go home with you
And upon this earth continue to trod

Let us not look back but forward to seeing you
Lord let us remember always to say Oh God
How we thank you!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
