Treasure Island

Thank You


I thank You Lord in many ways
In deed in prayer in song
In gratitude Your bride gives praise
Throughout the whole day long

I thank You for Your guiding hand
Your Spirit's warm embrace
Your secrets that I understand
Your wonders and Your grace

I thank You for Salvation's wine
Your burning Flame within
For all Your love that now is mine
And freedom from my sin

I thank You Lord that You are you
Such joy floods deep inside
You gave to me a name brand new
And chose me as Your bride

I thank my God You've made me whole
This child that once was dead
You've saved my body mind and soul
And fed to me Life's bread

I thank You for Your Spirit Lord
Your gift to such as I
Grace to flee The Avenger's sword
And promise not to die

I thank You for Your robe of light
Your joy and wondrous peace
That now in You my goal's in sight
Where life will never cease

My gratitude's the highest praise
That I my God can give
So now I'll thank You endless days
I have from You to live...

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
