I Can Give Thanks

When the storms of life press in on me

And the path ahead seems bleak

When I think I have lost my way

My strength is gone and I am weak

I can look back to that day long ago

A day filled with sadness and hate

When my Jesus was killed and rose again for me

And with joy I then can give thanks.

When I look at those around this world

And see the millions of people in need

I realized just how blessed I am

And all that God does for me

So the next time my friend

You feel you just can't go on

That you can't make it another mile

Remember to stop and your blessings count

And you too can give thanks to God.
