Oh Lord,How I Thank Thee!

Where would I be,
without you...?
I often ask myself but,
not knowing the answer.

Every day I'm blessed,
to see,this life given to me.
Your hand guides it and,
leads the way...through.

Any weather,even storms,
security,wrapped in your arms.
Safe,encased by unseen love,
showered from high above.

Rain begins to cleanse my,
soul,as the Sun shines gold.
No hold,chains are broken,
released,while the heart is new.

Freeing me from misery,
loving each and every part.
Of who you've made me to be,
and Oh Lord,How I Thank Thee!
