.
Can't Thank You Enough*
(Hallelujah Series 7)
  .
You 
Breathed a breath of life in me 
When only one last was left. 
Thank You! 

You 
Hugged the pieces of my heart 
When first it was oh so broken. 
Thank You! 

You 
Waited long for my every return 
Each time from You I walked away.
Thank You! 

You 
Took home my baby boy 
When life here just couldn't be. 
Thank You! 

You 
Said You would never leave me 
Even when the whole world tried.
Thank You! 

You 
Promised me a home in heaven 
When everyone else said, 'Go to hell!'
Thank You! 

And You 
Took the nails meant for me 
When I was steeped deep in sin.
Thank You! 

I was taught 
To thank You without ceasing, 
But what possible decent thanks
Could I offer God? 

And if the truth be known, 
I could spend a lifetime trying, 
And I would only be getting started...
I simply can't thank You enough.
 

1 Thessalonians 2:13, 3:9
