Thank You Lord

Thank You Lord
For each day
And for the wisdom
That comes my way

Thank You Lord
For my friends
May their friendship
Never come to an end

Thank You Lord
For the strength that comes along
And the knowledge
To know right from wrong

Thank You Lord
As each day's a new
May I start each day
As I pray to you

Thank You Lord
For the times of rest
Because I need You and them
If I must confess

Thank You Lord
For helping me hold on
For there have been times
When I wasn't so strong

Thank You Lord
For this knowledge to write
With each poem I pen
It makes my world more bright

Thank You Lord
For my sisters and brothers
There are always times
When we need each other

Thank You Lord
For lending me your ears
Listening to my troubles
And understanding my fears

Thank You Lord
For all the love going around
It is so much needed
And moves faster than sound

Thank You Lord
For guiding my hand
Just wanted you to know
That I am your fan

Thank You Lord
For everything you do
You are the greatest
So again, let me say
