Days To Come

Thank you for life, my Jesus
Thank you for fires and pine-laden breezes
Thank you rainy days and puppy dogs
Thank you for starry skies and newborns
Thank you for ocean spray
Thank you for ripe fruit and fresh milk
Thank you for all my senses
Thank you for ten fingers and ten toes
Thank you for all thirty-two teeth
Thank you for words of beauty
Thank you for landscapes that grace the soul
Thank you, Lord for very single second
Thank you even for the confusion
Thank you even for the pain
Thank you, for saving me
Thank you, through every trial
Thank you for bringing me home again
Thank you for Life, Lord Jesus
Thank you for little lambs that play
Thank you for the music of children's voice's
Thank you for the leaves upon the trees
Thank you for the rushing rivers
Thank you the rounded rocks beneath
Thank you of the strength to start each day
Thank you for the love of all who hold me
Thank you for the chance to give it back
Thank you for walking here among us
Thank you, so we could know you
Thank you, and know your road
Thank you for coming in those moments
Thank you, when all seems lost
Thank you, when I'm ready to cave in
Thank you for life, I do not understand it
Thank you, Jesus, for many days to come

-Stephen Pursell, 3/9/03
