I Thank You Lord

I thank You Lord that I can come to You each day in prayer
Knowing beyond a shadow of doubt that Thou my God art there

And in that blessed quiet place in the early morning hour
I once again am filled with Thee and with Thy awesome power

Knowing that Thou art God, Thou art the God Almighty
I take this matter seriously and do not treat it lightly

You know my heart is present there You know me through and through
You know I have unfailing trust in none other One but You

That precious time I take to pray a reminder of who I was
Leads me in a gratitudinal prayer to own Your worthy cause

For Thou alone art worthy Lord
Worthy is the Lamb
To take the place of sinner's such
Thou worthy Great I Am

Ah t'is fixed my heart is fixed my heart is fixed on Thee
So it's with great confidence I start my day with Thee

All is well that ends well I end each day in prayer
Having the full assurance of Thou my God art there

In between the moments of the passing of each day
I praise You God for drawing me to take the time to pray.

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.
