THANKING HIM FOR ALL THINGS
I came forth from my mother's womb in 1952 Born without clothes on my back, I was brand new In my 52 years of living on this earth I've had my shares of sorrow but I've also had mirth
I've lived in Georgia, Alabama and some other states Even lived in Germany, where I bought some fancy plates I've met many people, both the young and the old I wouldn't trade their friendship for all the world's gold
I'm thankful to be living in the year 2004 Around my family and friends, who live next door As I grow older, my eyes can clearly see That life has been very good to me
I thank the good Lord for the gift of life It is too short to be filled with envy and strife I may not be rich in this world's goods But I can truly enjoy a walk in the woods
I know that one day my life will come to an end I can no longer buy clothes and my money I can't spend I'm so thankful the Lord has prepared a better place In Heaven above, where I can see His dear face
Yes, I'm thankful for the blessings of life I've heard some good music, the flute and the fife But one day I will join that heavenly band Directed by Jesus with His nail scarred hand.
