Lord, I thank you
for my sight,
For the absence of darkness,
And the presence of light!
The many beautiful scenes I behold,
Are more precious than possessions of silver and
I thank you Lord, for being able to hear,
Familiar sounds falling on my ears!
I hear a grandchildís laughter,
And within my breast,
I realize just how much,
I am abundantly blessed!
The embrace of a loved one,
And the touch of a hand,
Strengthens, reassures, and makes me feel grand!
Ah yes, I thank You for being able to walk,
And oh what a blessing is the ability to talk!
Lord, let me convey to others the good news Iíve
And otherwise learn to measure each word.
Thank You for each breath and each beat of my
And yes, thank You for each functioning body
I am forever grateful for the plan of salvation,
And for being born in America,
A truly blessed nation!
Lord, I thank You for the things I possess!
I often take them for granted, I confess.
I am blessed being able to work each day,
To make money for the bills I have to pay.
I thank You for my family, dear Lord!
How sweetly we can dwell in one accord!
We can worship together,
For our goal is the same!
It is lifting up Your Holy and Righteous Name!
Finally Lord, I thank you for being my Friend,
And promising to be with me until the end!
