Today, I have much I want to say.
Today, I want to thank the Lord
For his patience and his love.
I want to thank our heavenly father
For the sky, the stars and the earth.
I want to thank the Lord
For being there,
On that one time, I was scared.
I want to thank him for providing
The delicious meal, I wasn’t counting.
I want to praise his name today
For tomorrow… Who knows?
If I will see the new day.
