Do you thank the Lord for electricity?
Or the heat in your household?
For all the things that are pretty?
Or do you just say no?
Do you thank the Lord for your health?
Or do you take it for granted?
Do you give him part of your wealth?
Or are you selfish with it?
Do you thank the Lord for your life?
For water and food to eat?
To be able to run and fly a kite?
Don't you think these things are neat?
Do you thank the Lord?
Do you thank the Lord at all?
When you see the tree's leaves
Change colors in the fall?
When it's winter and it snows?
Do you wonder at its glow?
Or do you complain
At the bitter and the cold?
Well you know I thank the Lord
Yes, indeed he makes me glad
When I think of all he made
What a brilliant world we have
And I want to praise His name
For giving me my birth
So, whether we have electricity or not
I've got the Lord and that's the greatest worth
