Lord God, we thank You for Your grace
And all surpassing love
That made a way for us to face
Your throne set high above.
We thank You for Your sovereign plan
That guides our steps below,
From age to age its purpose spans
And shows us where to go.
We thank You for Your only Son
Who came for us to die,
Then rose again, His purpose done,
Our Advocate on high.
We thank You for the gifts You send
Providing every need,
Each meal, each breath, and every friend
Our hopes You oft exceed.
We thank you for a hope so bright
Of heaven, home, and rest
Where we will dwell before Your sight
In all Your riches blessed.
