Give Thanks - Poem by Ishmael Mabhiza

Give Thanks

All He wants from us is thanks giving
Give thanks as an individual- Ooh
My heart is full of thanks giving
He has done great things
He has turned the swords into plough shires
He has returned the enemies back to their gates
The is Lord good He is the sun and shield life my life

To my jaws and knees he gave strength
All the wealth and prosperity He attracted
In Abundance poured He the goodness in my life
In my days and my hands shew He the power of His word
Sickness and illhealth had I but gave He me total health
Know I admissions to any hospital ward
With noscar left He my heart clean and intact back in a whole state

Hey hooo, allow me to give praises unto Him
Praise the Lord oh my soul and all that is in me for it belongs to Him
He has done me well; He came down and finished the work-
He cut short, who am I not to riseup and give thanks for His work.
Marvelous are His works for what He does to sons of man for He doesnt blink
Who is Like unto Him who makes

Grateful am I to his great and wonderful name
A sinner was I; to kill, wound and maim
Was a duty; call which I pleased to give in rim
A drunkered, witch, tricster, fornicator, adulteror- doldrum
Trouble causer, thief, robber, cheater -chief of pandemonium
But now a new creature-to know I am new with no room
For sin and I give thanks as a norm

Halleluyah-give thanks to the Lord; Jehovah
The great one -His power is incomparable
He is worth of all glory and He loves all
He remembers not our purverse ways at all
Gives thanks for heals He our wounds once and for all
Give thanks to Him for He is worthy for it all
How excellent is His name to all.
