Lyrics: Verse 1:
Lord, I am grateful for this lovely world,
And all thy creations here,
And by thy power and majesty grand,
For us thou placed them here.
I thank thee dear Lord for each day I arise,
And in humility I say to thee
How marvelous is what I can see.

Verse 2:
The infinite sky, the rain coming down,
The wind blowing through the trees.
The song of the birds, the flowers’ perfume,
To enjoy the immense sea.
The warmth of the sun, the light of the moon,
The stars shining bright in splendor.
I thank dear Lord for these and much more,
Created by thy great love.

Verse 3:
I thank thee dear Lord for marvelous things,
For giving me more than I need.
For family and friends and time that we share,
And helping me grow in thee.
Please help me to use my time wisely,
And ever be faithful and firm.
Oh Lord I trust thee and am in thy hands.
With thee I feel secure.

Chorus:
Each day I pray I feel thy presence.
Lord, help me be good.
Help me to be strong, have patience and love,
And guide me from above.
I love thee Lord with all my heart,
And ask thee to be with me.
For all thy blessings and thy love,
Lord, I thank thee.
