~ Thank You Father ~
by Raymond Sides
Thank you God the Father for the forgiveness of all my sins,
And for Your Holy Spirit that lives and abides within.
Thank You for Your word that helps me to stay in Your will,
And for the blood and life that Jesus gave on Calvary's hill.
Thank You for the joyful song that You have put in my heart,
And for the promise, that from You I will never have to part.
Thank You for the promise of a heavenly home in Your Paradise above.
A beautiful home, where there will forever abide the purest of love.
Thank You for the walls of jasper and the streets of pure gold,
Streets that I will walk on forever, while never growing old.
Thank You for a reunion with family and friends who have gone
on before me, And for helping them to see, that only in Jesus
could they ever be free.
Thank You for Your Son Jesus, who will give glory's light to Your heavenly place.
Thank You Jesus for giving all of Yourself, so that we could forever
live in Your love, mercy, and grace.
