This is a love song, a worship song, and a song of gratitude. It's personal and never really sung by anyone else, but I like it all the same.




D                    G      D        A

I was stuck, in a darkness small and confining,

D                    G              D         A

But you asked if I’d walk with you where the sun was shining

A                                          D

I didn’t know, I couldn’t guess, what was waiting

G                     A      D                     G

And I healed in your light, watched you win every fight

A                      D

Thank you, thank you, thank you for this life



D                 G               D                   A

Walking through life’s storm, we were underneath the lightening

D                 G                 D       A

Singing over the thunder, I forgot it was frightening

A                               D

Through the care of your hand I could feel your strength

G                  A     D             G

My fear turned to awe as you became my all.

A                      D

Thank you, thank you, thank you for this strength.



I looked up and I was tiny, like a pebble on the shore

But you whispered in my heart that I was so much more

Than the stars and the planets spinning far away.

They glittered like the sand - in your likeness, I am. . .

Thank you, thank you, thank you for this joy


Skipping through the whirlwind, like a dance upon your shore

Trying to become enough to captivate my Lord.

To finally see the shining face of God.

I treasure the evidence my Lover is Providence

Thank you, thank you, thank you for this Love


G                                       D
And I wrote this song - this song’s for you

             G                   D
Cause I’m waiting here - waiting for you

          G                        D
And I’ll smile when - smile when I sing       

A                                   D
Until you come back, come back, come back for me.
