Thank you God


GOD THANK YOU

WERE DO I BEGIN TO SAY
GOD THANK YOU
THANK YOU FOR LOVING ME
EVEN THOUGH I DON'T DESERVE TO BE LOVED
THANK YOU FOR BEING A FRIEND
THANK YOU FOR BEING A SHOULDER TO CRY ON
THANK YOU FOR BEING MY SOURCE OF STRENGHT
THANK YOU FOR BEING MY PROVIDER
THANK YOU FOR BEING MY SHIELD
THANF YOU FOR BEING MY GUIDER
THANK YOU FOR BEING MY PARENT
THANK YOU FOR BEING MYCURE
THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO BE MYSELF
THANK YOU FOR RESPECTING ME AND MY WISHES
THANK YOU FOR NOT JUDGING ME
THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNCONDITIONAL LOVE
THANK YOU FOR THE KNOWLEDGE YOU GAVE ME
THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME THE STRENGHT TO RISE AGAIN
THANK YOU FOR THE CHALLENGES I HAVE FACED
CAUSE THEY MADE ME WHO I AM TODAY
THANK YOU FOR MY JOY AND SORROW
THANK YOU FOR MY DAILY BREAD
THANK YOU FOR KEEPING ME SAFE EVERYDAY
YOU KEEP ME SAFE FROM THIS CRUEL WORLD
I ONLY OBSERVE WITH MY EYES
AS YOU HAVE PROMISED
"YOU WILL ONLY OBSERVE WITH YOUR EYES"
THANK YOU FOR BEING SO FAITHFUL
WHEN I SEE ALL THE HORRIBLE THINGS HAPPENING IN THIS WORLD
I GET FILLED WITH SORROW
BUT AT THE SAME TIME
IT MAKES ME REALISE HOW MUCH YOU LOVE AND CARE FOR ME
OH! FATHER WHAT CAN I SAY
I WAS LOST YOU FOUND ME
I HAD NO HOPE YOU RESTORED MY HOPE
I WAS DIRTY YOU CLEANSED ME
I WAS SICK YOU HEALED ME
I WAS POOR YOU MADE ME RICH
I WAS AGLY YOU MADE ME BEAUTIFUL
I WAS A NOBODY YOU MADE ME SOMEBODY GREAT
I WAS AN ORPHAN YOU BECAME MY PARENT
I WAS ALONE YOU KEPT ME COMPANY
I WAS MURDER YOU WASHED MY HANDS
AND MADE ME A NEW CREATURE
I WAS NAKED YOU CLOTHED ME
I WAS HOMELESS YOU GAVE ME HOME
I WAS A RUBBISH YOU RECYCLED ME
I WAS THE TAIL YOU MADE ME THE HEAD
I WAS MONSTER YOU MADE ME AN ANGEL
I WAS STINKING YOU REMOVED IT ALL AND PUTTED A NEW AROMA
I WAS A PROSTITUTE YOU MADE ME INTO A WOMAN OF DIGNITY
I WAS AFRAID YOU MADE ME TO BE BRAVE AS A LION
MY DREAMS WERE SHARTTED BUT YOU RESTORED THEM
AND MADE THEM A REALITY
I WAS DROWNING YOU SAVED ME
I HAD LOST ALL MY FRIENDS YOU BECAME A TRUE FRIEND
I WAS A CLAY IN THE RIVER WHICH HAD NO USE
BUT YOU TOOK ME AND MOULDED ME INTO A USEFULL VERSEL
I WAS JUST NOTHING
BUT NOW I'M ABOVE IT ALL
I WILL ALWAYS BE THANKFUL FOR EVERYTHING
SO THANK YOU LORD
AND I WHETHER GOOD OR BAD CAUSE I KNOW EVERYTHING WORKS OUT
FOR THE BEST WHEN I HAVE YOU BY MY SIDE
