Eternal Thanks

I thank You, God , with all my heart... for being good to me
... and for the chance to gain a place... In your eternity...
I know the sins that weigh my soul... Are more than I can
count... And I could never expiate... Or purge the whold
amount... But I can ask forgiveness and... I know my soul
may rise... Above the wondrous beauty of... The everlasting
skies... I know that if I love You, God... I cannot lose the
way... For You will lead me through the dark... And guide
me through the day... And that is why I promptly choose...
The path I know is true... And why I love You, God, and give
... Eternal thanks to You.
