Thank You Lord
I woke up this morning, got out of bed,
I looked all around, then bowed my head.
I said, "Thank you Lord for the good night's rest,"
I went about my day, knowing I was blessed.
I walked to my back door, looked up at the sky,
I saw a flock of birds, as they flew by.
I saw two squirrels, playing by the trees,
The beautiful flowers were blowing softly in the gentle breeze.
I remembered back to when I was but a child,
My Mom and Dad were looking at me with a beautiful smile.
They told me about God, and His son Jesus, you see,
And how He went to the cross, near the beautiful Garden of Gethsemane.
I really enjoyed hearing about God and His Son and the old, old story,
Because one day, I will live with both of them in glory,
Thank you God, for all you have done,
I especially thank you for your Son.
