Hymn MP 486 Now thank we all our God
A God Of Hope
I just want to say thank you
For this life you’ve given me,
For all the wondrous blessings,
For setting my spirit free
You are such an awesome God
Who only gives the best,
Giving us a life of hope
When we face all kinds of tests
For often we face in life,
Struggles of every kind,
Little things can get us down
And peace is far from our minds
But you give hope to carry on
No matter what we face,
When we feel like giving up,
Unable to finish the race
You step in just in time
With angels heaven sent,
To encourage us to carry on
And to give us extra strength
So I praise you, Lord, for whom you are
And for all that I can be,
For I’d never have a better life
Apart from your life in me.
