Thank You Forever
By Vivian May Edwards

Thank you forever
Lord Jesus, how can I
Express how I feel
All my love
My heartís cry

Youíve given me more
Than I ever could hope for
You laid down your life
Touched my soul
Healed my strife

If I never again felt your love
Knew your grace
Your protection, your mercy
Your kind warm embrace

Your guidance, provision
Compassion so pure
Iíd still feel so blessed
Yes, Iíd know that for sure

My cup over flows
Yes, my sinful heart knows
My Saviorís done more
Touched my soul to its core

Lord Jesus Iíll thank you
For ever and always
For giving me faith
Yes, itís You I will praise

For giving me life
For restoring my soul
Iíll forever be grateful
Your praise is my goal

Iím humbled, Iím thrilled
Yes, my heart is full, filled
For all that Youíve done
Praise to you, Holy One

My name's written down
Up in heaven above
Youíve done all, I rejoice
Thank you for your great love

And your gift, what a lift
And your grace, O what grace
That one day I will see
Your bright shining pure face

The fact that You chose me
Before I was born
The fact that You willingly suffered
Cruel scorn

The fact that You died
From the grave You were raised
I thank you forever
Your name, is my praise.
