I PRAISE YOU

Lord, I praise You for Your goodness. I praise You for Your love. I praise You for the kindness, That You've shown throughout my life. I'd be dead if not for You, Of that My Lord I'm sure. Though I knew it not You followed me, My safety to ensure. Lord, I praise You for Your providence, And protection through the storm. I've not always had the best, But I've always had enough. Oft You've sent Your angel, To watch over me; To follow and protect me, You always heard my pleas. Lord, I praise You for the wisdom, That You saw that I acquired. I was blind and deaf and dumb, And You brought me to The Light. Thank You Lord that now I see, That now at last I hear. That at last I've found my voice, My praise rings loud and clear. Lord I am unworthy. I know I am unclean. I stand ashamed before You, For the way that I have been; But Jesus came to rescue me, He pulled me from the mud. He gave to me a clean, white gown, And washed me in His Blood. Then He held me in His arms, And told me not to fear, For He had washed away my sin, Because He holds me dear. Even when I knew You not, Even when I turned away, You followed me, protected me, Even though I chose to stray. I tried to become one with them, The children of the world. But they would not accept me, For on me You'd placed Your Mark. Lord I want to thank You, For like the lamb who strayed, I was in grave danger, And The Shepherd came and saved. He saved me from the wolf who stalked, The serpent's tooth that struck, He saved me from the slippery slope, And pulled me from the muck. Lord I want to praise You. You are The Mighty God. You bring life and love and joy, Wherever You have trod. No matter where You place Your foot, A miracle occurs. To be the lowest member of Your court, Would be an honor Sir.
