Thank You

What if in morning when I wake up
Even before I fill my coffee cup
I said thank You
Thank You

What if I look at the day and the hours ahead
And before I move forward I bowed my head
And said thank You
Oh I said thank You

What if I looked at my life in a different way
Took a little more time to stop and pray
I know it would change all the moments in between
So here I go

Thank You for everything
Thank You for loving me
It don?t even matter what tomorrow brings
Well I will sing my

Thank You for sun and rain
For what You give and take away
For all Your goodness I will always say
Thank You
Oh I?ll say thank You

What if I lost everything that I had
I could smile and somehow still be glad
And say thank You
Thank you

?Cause life is joy, life is pain
But the prayer on my heart will never change
I say thank You
Oh I?ll say thank You
