Breathed a breath of life in me
When only one last was left.
Hugged the pieces of my heart
When first it was oh so broken.
Waited long for my every return
Each time from You I walked away.
Took home my baby boy
When life here just couldn't be.
Said You would never leave me
Even when the whole world tried.
Promised me a home in heaven
When everyone else said, 'Go to hell!'
Took the nails meant for me
When I was steeped deep in sin.
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.
