I'M THANKFUL

I’M THANKFUL

I CRIED THE NIGHT YOU LEFT ME
THEN I CRIED AND CRIED ALL DAY
I CRIED AND THEN I ASK MYSELF
HOW COULD YOU TREAT ME THIS WAY

WHAT DID I DO TO DESREVE THIS 
NOTHING THAT I COULD THINK OFF
I ONLY WANTD TO SHARE MY LIFE WITH YOU
AND GIVE YOU ALL MY LOVE

I THOUGHT THAT I WOULD NEVER, 
EVER LOVE ANYONE AGAIN
THEN I REALIZED THAT JESUS DIED FOR ME
TO SAVE ME FROM MY SINS

AND NOW THAT, THIS HAS ENDED 
AND I HAVE BEEN RESTORED 
I’VE LEARNED THAT IT ONLY TAKES 
GOD’S LOVE GRACE AND MERCY
FOR ME TO BE REBORN

SO I’M VERY THANKFUL 
BECAUSE I’VE FOUND THAT ONE TRUE LOVE
THE LOVE THAT ONLY GOD CAN GIVE
THAT’S SENT FROM HEAVEN ABOVE

SO IF YOU WANT TO HAVE THAT LOVE
THE KIND ONLY HE CAN GIVE
TURN TO JOHN 3: 16
AND IN HIM YOU CAN LIVE.
