(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
The chorus of this one was used for a short hymn or various transitional interludes, but once I knew the verses, I never wanted to sing it without them.
Some thank the Lord for friends and home,
For mercies sure and sweet;
But I would praise Him for His grace –
In prayer I would repeat:
Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul,
Thank you, Lord, for making me whole;
Thank you, Lord, for giving to me
Thy great salvation so rich and free.
Some thank Him for the flow’rs that grow,
Some for he stars that shine;
My heart is filled with jay and praise
Because I know He’s mine.
I trust in Him from day to day,
I prove His saving grace;
I’ll sing this song of praise to Him
Until I see His face.
