Father God please bless this mission
where I now lay my head,
You know if not for this place, Lord
I wouldn't even have a bed.
I know you brought me here, Lord
where I can be safe and warm
to learn about your love for me
and rest in your loving arms.
I thank-you for the blanket
that kept me warm last night.
I thank-you for these nice clean clothes,
they even fit just right.
My jumbled mind can't comprehend
your power, love and grace.
I know if not for you, Lord
I'd fall flat on my face.
Lord, I sure do thank-you
for all you do for me.
I know that I'm not worthy
but you died to set me free.
