Thank You Lord

I thank You for the birds that sing so sweetly,
For the early morning dew upon the leaves of ivy.
I thank You for the eyes I have to see with
For the vision and wisdom that comes from You.
I thank You for my ears to hear and listen with
and those words so soothing and joyous and dear.
I thank You for a mind to think with each day
as I can seek Your presence each and every way.
I thank You for Your beautiful skies in the night
And the pastel colors that show so pleasingly bright.
I thank You for Your dear Son Jesus of Nazareth
And what He did for His name to be called Christ.
I thank You for a tongue to speak the truth clearly
And for the fact that I can tell of my life changed.
I thank You for this time although close to morning
And for words to express the peace I have deep within.
I thank You for loved ones that are far away and near
And my friends who loved me despite my weaknesses.
I thank You for the quiet and moving voice inside
That wakes me and cheers me each second and each year.
I thank You for those who have loved me with warmth
And their never ending spring of understanding and joy.
I thank You that I have been given the Bible to read
That I might live the life of faith and love and hope.
I thank You Father for Your abundant source of patience
And for waiting for me to surrender my life once again.
I thank You that I don't worry for things tomorrow
For those things shall take care of themselves sure.
I thank You that I can not only rely but receive power
That will help me to live the life sober and victorious.
