Lord, thank you for everything that has come my way;
some of it's not so good but thank you anyway.
Thank you for the troubles that I have gone through day to day;
without them I might have forgotten to take the time to stop and pray.
Thank you for the sickness my loved ones have gone through;
Thank you that you've used it to build my faith in You.
Thank you for the many times I felt so all alone;
it was in those dreary times I've knelt before your throne.
Thank Lord for keeping me through the trials along the way;
Thank you for holding me in your hand every single night and day;
Thank you for the times when I felt I couldn't go one step further on;
'cause it was in those darkest times that you gave me a beautiful song.
Thank you Lord for all the things that have brought me pain and tears;
For it's in my brokenness of spirit, that I find You so very near.
There's not a thing that comes my way that you can't see me through;
So I will lift my hands unto your Name and give eternal praise to you.
