O Lord I thank you that I am fearfully and wonderfully made
All praise and honor to your matchless name
You who have ever remained the same

Your mercies are new every single morning
It is you who allow me to yawn
You have allowed me to experience many, many dawns

You have delivered me through all of my pain
You have shown me your grace again and again

Whenever I was in trouble you delivered me
You have been kind enough to set me free

So I thank you for everything that you have done
I thank you for allowing me to live
I thank you for blessing me
I thank you that I have been able to give
I thank you for forgiving me

I thank you for not allowing me to stay fallen
I thank you for your awesome calling

I thank you for being my very best friend
I thank you for keeping your promise to be with me to the end

Whenever it gets dark you shine your light
Then the darkness goes away and the way becomes bright

Then I get to see where I am going
I get to know where my seed needs sowing

So I thank you Lord
Thank you for your word

Thank you for everything that you have done in my life
Thank you for everything that you are going to do

Praise the Lord
Praise the Lord

Poem of the Day

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

Life is real, life is earnest,
And the shell is not its pen –

Was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting,
