I Just Want To Thank You Lord
Dear Lord, I look at all the earthly wonders that I see,
And know the greatest wonder is that You have chosen me,
And loved me with a love so strong, mere words cannot express
The depth of Your great majesty, and awesome holiness.
The beauties of this earth are many flowers, and grass, and trees;
And looking at their matchless splendor brings me to my knees,
In gratitude and thankfulness for blessings that are mine,
And for the table You’ve prepared for me to come and dine.
You've given me a home on earth where I stay warm and dry,
But tell me You’re preparing me a mansion in the sky.
And when I stop to wash the sweat from toil throughout the day,
I praise You for the precious blood that washed my sins away.
And even when the storm clouds threaten to destroy my peace,
I know that You can calm the waves, and make the billows cease.
So I just want to thank you, Lord, for all that You have done,
But most of all, I thank You for salvation through Your Son.

Let us come before
his presence with thanksgiving,
and make a joyful noise
unto him with psalms
