Thank you, God, for the darkness.
It helps me enjoy the light.
No matter how bleak life seems,
Morning follows the night.
Thank you, Lord, for the hard times.
They often try my soul.
They build in me strength and courage
And the will to complete a goal.
Thank you, God, for the heartache,
That I’ve had along the way.
It has taught me to be much kinder
Towards those I see each day.
Thank you, Lord, for the Teacher
Who is helping me to find peace,
Learn to control my emotions,
And find some blessed release.
Thank you, God, for each morning
That I find myself still alive
And eager to spread God’s love,
So others are able to thrive.
