Lord, I Praise and Thank You!

Lord, I Praise and Thank You!


Lord, I praise and thank you

for this moment.

I give you my life,

with no postponement!


I repent of my backward

and sinful ways.

I lift up my hands and

 give you praise!


I admit that I can’t do it on my own.

I invite you to be the lord of my home!


I come before you on bended knees.

And ask you to change

 my life…  Please!


You’re the one that I want

 to daily seek!

You are so strong,

and I am so weak!


I love you Jesus!  More than I can say!

Speak your words,

that I may obey!


I worship and bring honor

 to your name!

Your message of salvation,

 I’ll forever proclaim!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
