Thank You, Lord

"The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain." ~ I Corinthians 15:56-58​

I was thanking the Lord in prayer today (5/19/11) for his goodness, for all that He has done for me, for loving me, saving me, and for forgiving me, et al, when I sensed he had a song for me to write on that subject, "Thank You, Lord." And, I am truly thankful for him rescuing me out of my life of sin, for giving me purpose and direction, for valuing me enough to call me into his service, for never giving up on me, and for all the many ways in which he encourages, comforts and directs me in his love moment by moment and day by day.

Thank You, Lord / An Original Work / May 19, 2011

Thank You, Lord, for saving me;
From my sins set free.
Crucified and risen Lord,
They hung on a tree.
They thought they had finished You.
You came back to life;
Triumphed over hell and sin;
You gave eternal life.

Thank You, Lord, for victory
Over all my sin,
So that I might live with You;
You cleansed me within;
Filled me with your love and pow’r;
Give me strength each day,
So that I might live for You,
To love You and obey.

Thank You, Lord, for your return.
Soon You will arrive
To receive Your bride to You;
Meet You in the sky.
You’ll wipe away all our tears;
Free us from our fears;
Crown our heads in victory.
We’ll praise You with our cheers!
