This Thanksgiving Day

 Blossoming flowers 
 Birds in the air
 Rain in due season
 Clouds white and fair
  
 Moon in last quarter
 Stars shining bright
 Sun in the heavens
 Giving us light
  
 These are things I love in my life
 These are the things that make me smile
 These are the things for which I give thanks
 This Thanksgiving Day
  
 Food on the table 
 Smells like a dream
 Choices of drinks
 Pie with whipped cream
  
 Family around us
 How blessed we are
 People that care
 Both near and afar
  
 These are things I love in my life
 These are the things that make me smile
 These are the things for which I give thanks
 This Thanksgiving Day
  
 Joy overflows
 Peace overcomes
 Love overwhelms
 Thanksgiving has come
  
 Most of all thanks
 For mercy and grace
 That comes from my God
 This Thanksgiving Day
  
 These are things I love in my life
 These are the things that make me smile
 These are the things for which I give thanks
 This Thanksgiving Day 

I Will Give Thanks

 I will give thanks to the Lord most High
 For His life, for His sacrifice
 I will give thanks to the Lord most High
 He’s given me new life
  
 I will give thanks for my God above
 Fort His constant abiding love
 I will give thanks to the Lord above
 He provides more than enough
  
 I will give thanks to the King of Kings
 He gives me joy and unending peace
 I will give thanks to the King of Kings
 He is my everything
  
 I will give thanks to Jesus Christ
 He gives me victory in the fight
 I will give thanks to Jesus Christ
 He’s the way, the truth and the life 

Works of Grace

 It really doesn’t matter what happens
 Whether good or bad
 Whether the enemy attacks of stands back
 Whether I stand or fall
 Whether I abide in the shelter of His wings
 Or walk on my own path alone
 It really doesn’t matter if I’m happy or sad
 If I’m blessed or in need
 If I’m energized or tired
 If I can clearly see the future 
 Or if I have no hope
 None of these things should determine
 If I give Him thanks
  
 Thanks is due the Lord at all times
 In every situation
 In every trial
 In every test
 In every hour of every day
 Because He is righteous
 He is worthy
 He is God in heaven
 No matter what happens on this earth
 He never changes
 His love always remains
 His compassion is from generation to generation
 His mercy can grace surround us
 Like a fortress and a refuge
 For all  he has already done
 Not for what is happening now
 I must give Him thanks
  
 Give Him thanks with the fruit of my lips
 Give Him thanks by my actions
 By working out my salvation
 By showing mercy to others
 By being full of grace and forgiveness
 My thanks is not just words of praise
 But works of grace
 Feeding the hungry
 Quenching the thirty
 Brining peace to the troubled
 And joy to the sorrowful
 I thank Him by spreading His love
 By sowing seeds of faith
 By sharing the Gospel
  
  
 Thanks is not an attitude
 It is gratitude
 Thanks is not a reaction
 It is an action
 Thanks is not just words
 But deeds
 Thanks is abiding in Him
 Thanks is making disciples
 Thanks is preaching the word
 Thanks is being in season and out of season
 Thanks should inhabit our lives
 Overflowing so others will see
 Not just hear
  
 Today
 This hour
 This minute
 Give thanks
 Give thanks to the Lord for all He has done
 For this great creation
 For the future He has for you
 For the joy that is set before you
 Thanks for your friends’
 Thanks for your enemies
 Thanks for your good times
 Thanks for your trials
 Thanks for His great compassion on you
 No matter what comes
 Or what doesn’t come
 Give thanks 

He is Good To Me

 I want to give thanks to the Lord for He is good
 For His mercy endures forever
 I want to give thanks to the Lord for He is good
 He is good. He is good to me
  
 I want to give praise to the Lord for He is good
 For His love will last forever
 I want to give praise to the Lord for He is good
 He is good.  He is good to me
  
 All of my life I had been wandering like a ship without a sail
 All of my days were spent as lost as I could be
 But as I travelled down the road
 Jesus was there to take my load
 I was so glad when His mercy covered me
  
 I want to give thanks to the Lord for He is good
 For His mercy endures forever
 I want to give thanks to the Lord for He is good
 He is good. He is good to me
  
 I want to give praise to the Lord for He is good
 For His love will last forever
 I want to give praise to the Lord for He is good
 He is good.  He is good to me 

You Found Me

When I was lost and all alone
You found me
When my strength was almost gone
You found me
When I just could not go on
You found me and set me free

Free from the darkness in my life
Free from the fear that ate me alive
Free so my soul could now survive
You found me and set me free

Thank you Lord for not giving up
Thank you for showing me you are enough
Thank you for your amazing love
Thank you for finding me

You Are My All In All (with music)

All that I need
All that I want
All I require
All of my hope
All of my joy
All I desire
Is in you, Oh Lord
Is in you, Oh Lord

You are my all in all, My everything
You are my wonderful loving King
You are the light that guides my path
You are the way to life that lasts
You are the truth that keeps me safe at night

I will praise you
I will praise you
I will praise you
I will praise you

Where would I be without you, Lord? How could I live without your loving hand holding onto mine? I do not want to go through a day without you by my side. You guide me, protect me, deliver me, provide for me, watch over me, love me and fill me with peace and joy. Life is worth living because you have given me hope. Today, tomorrow and every day to come I will lift my hands to praise you. Ever minute of every second I will lift up my voice and my mind to worship your name. Your name is Jesus Christ, Son of the Most High, Lamb of God, Rose of Sharon, Bright and Morning Star, Alpha and Omega, Ruler of Heaven and Earth, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. All that I want and need is to know you.

Psalm 16:5 King James Version (KJV)
5 The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

 

His Wonderful Grace

What is it that keeps me coming back to God
What is it that makes me crave His vast and wonders love
What is it that assures me that He is enough
It’s his grace
His wonderful grace

What is it that removes all of my doubts and fears
What is it that dries my eyes and wipes away my tears
What is it that makes my worries all disappear
It’s his grace
His wonderful grace

I thank Him for the grace that He has shown to me
I thank Him for the grace that makes me what I need to be
I thank Him for the grace that caused my heart to see
His great grace
His wonderful Grace

I will sing His Praises my voice will raise up high
I will lift my hands and worship reaching for the sky
The world will know this grace as my words do testify
That He alone is Worthy
Worthy to be praised
He alone is Worthy
I’ll celebrate his grace
He alone is Worthy
One day soon I’ll see his face
All of this from His wonderful grace
