My Thank You For This Day


I slip under the covers and close my eyes tight

Not long until I will be dreaming through the night

My eyelids are heavy, my mind begins to doze

I never like to let the day draw to a close

Without saying thanks from the depths of my heart

That in the doing of your will I have a part

When I think of all those I know who face trials

Yet share the same love, hope, faith and joyful smiles

You give us the strength we need to face each new day

Until the time you can wipe every tear away

We sing your praises as our father up above

I know you will act soon, for you’re the God of love!
