For all you have done for us...

I am so thankful for a year of growth in our family and my heart. God has once again shown himself faithful to a girl who too often is faithless. Eighteen years ago tonight I gave my life to Jesus, and despite my best efforts to undermine him, he hasn't given it back. I remember talking to the women mentoring me at the time about how afraid I was of Letting go and allowing God into the driver's seat of my life and now it terrifies me to imagine what life I would have built the last eighteen years without him. 

Oh, Jesus thank you for all you have done. Tonight I raise a song to bless your heart.

Your grace will never be forgot

Your mercy all my life

Will be my source forever song

My story and my light

 

 

From mountain top to valley low

through laughter and through tears

Surely the goodness of my God

Will follow all the years

 

 

For all that You have done for us

for every battle won

We'll raise a song to bless Your heart

For all that you have done

 

 

You know our failures and regrets

You always led us home

Redemption's arm has raised us up

Our triumph in the storm

 

 

For all that You have done for us

For every battle won

We'll raise a song to bless Your heart

For all that you have done

 

(You're faithful through the ages)

 

In unity we'll stand as one

As family we'll go

Shoulder to shoulder

Hand in hand

Into the great unknown

Your grace will never be forgot, Your mercy all my life, will be my source forever song, my story and my light.
