Today I thank God for my eyes,
Whose sight is at each dawn renewed,
Who lift their gaze toward the skies
To well with tears of gratitude.
Today I thank God for my ears,
That hear the songs of birds and wind,
And cause my heart such joy to hear
The Good News preached to all who’ve sinned.
Today I thank God for my nose,
To smell the sweetness on the breeze,
The incense sent by prayers of those
Who seek their Father on their knees.
Today I thank God for my tongue,
That tastes His goodness, tells it too.
Oh, never sweeter song is sung
Than when ‘tis sung in praise of You!
Today I thank God for my hands,
That learn His service day by day,
That gives me means to understand
The heart of Christ who loves always.
Today I thank God for my feet,
That bear good news to those who wait
In fear to hear the tidings sweet
That He forgives: It’s not too late!
Today I thank God for my life.
How ever can my words portray
The beauties hid amidst the strife,
The joy of knowing Him each day?
Today I thank God for Himself:
Who bore the weight of sin and nail
To heal my soul and make it well:
Who will not ever change or fail.
None of my life has gone the way it was "supposed to go," but I don't love my life any less because of the hardships and new directions. I see so much unexpected good in it, and I want others to see the good in theirs.
