Thank you Lord for calling people
Into Your kingdom every day,
Because the world is a better place
When people humble themselves and pray.
Thank you Lord for being in control
And appointing souls into Your care,
Because the most precious gift is eternal life
In Your kingdom where You’re there.
Thank you Lord for softening the hardest hearts
As they repent and call Your name,
When lives are radically changed indeed
And no longer are the same.
The worldly ways will tell us
That negativity and evil reign,
But it’s behind the scenes that You will work
As people surrender in Your name.
Thank you Lord as You orchestrate
Every test and trial in us,
And although it’s never pleasant at the time
The long term benefits do last.
Thank you Lord as You surprise us
When You call those we never would,
Because Your love and grace extends far beyond
And is always pure and good.
Thank you Lord as Your humble servants
Mainly work behind the scenes,
Because it’s Your name they wish to glorify
Not wanting to be seen.
Thank you Lord when words of kindness
Emanate from those You’ve called,
And where sincere motives with a childlike faith
In the heart they are installed.
Thank you Lord for Your amazing grace
Because it’s never earned or ever deserved,
But it’s through Your tender mercies and pure heart
When with Your love You serve.
You gave us the most precious gift;
Jesus Christ our dear Lord,
And inspired scriptures as a guide
As we journey with Your word.
Thank you Lord, we thank You
Because Your phenomenal ways inspire,
As we press towards the eternal goal
When Your ways we do admire.
