Thank You For Life!
By June Stein
We thank You Lord, for life itself
The ever-changing parts,
For all of life is richly blessed
When You are at the heart.
There are the joyful times we love
The laughter and the fun,
And times that are our learning ground
The darker, hurtful ones.
Lord You allow the darker times
To build and strengthen faith,
In all of these You are with us
And never will forsake.
We thank You Lord, for loving us
For patience, mercy, care,
Your guidance and forgiveness
Protect us from despair.
And it is only through Your grace
And sacrificial love,
That on the Cross, You rescued us
To live with You above.
For all the beauty of the earth
Has nothing to compare,
With Heaven’s glorious wonder,
And our life with You there.
We thank You Lord, for life!
