I give praise to Lord for His counsel,
He has shown His comfort to me.
He has cared for me since my arrival,
Since my birth He has provided for me.
I’ll give Him praise in want or plenty,
All of my provisions are heaven sent.
In all of my trials He is there with me,
I know that in Him I can be content.
I know what it is like to be made poor,
And I know what it is to be successful.
It is He alone that makes my spirit soar,
Only He can make this sad heart joyful.
If I should happen to stumble and fall,
I know He is there to set me right.
In my joy or in my sorrow on Him I call,
He is my Lord by day and my Lord by night.
For all that He is I give Him praise;
To Him I owe a debt I can not repay.
I’ll serve Him for the rest of my days,
Sharing His love and following His way.
